Hi all,

Just found this site while researching BIAB, looks like I'll find everything I need to know.

Now looking for a recipe for my first all grain attempt, any suggestions for a fool proof good English ale?

Gday folks, BIABer from QLD in Australia. Been brewing for a couple of years but only seem to get the time to do it once a month or so.

I'm a sparky who works in Automation and Controls so looking to put together a sweet rig at some point if I can get it past the finance minister.

Hello forum. I'm a video- & photographer from Helsinki, Finland. Looking forward to participate on the forum. I stumbled upon this site gathering information about BIAB. As i was an engineer in my previous career, i found biabrewer surfing the net for math required to build my own spreadsheet. There's many great sites, this is definitely one of them.

I've done a few brews before with extracts. So i'm studying the successes of others to lift my beers to a new level. I'm a newbie and on the verge of upgrading to all grain soon, starting with BIAB.

Welcome Beerspector! The engineers that I know tend to spend way too much time studying and researching something new instead of just diving in, don't be like them. Take a look at the BIABacus, get your gear together, and JUST BREW IT!

hey all. andrew from california. been brewing about 6 years. extract then all-grain. just had my second child and time, space and money is limited so I'm looking at going a little smaller with my process while maintaining my all-grain setup with keggles and a cooler.

Interested in BIAB for 2.5 gallon batches to experiment a little more and brew after the family goes to bed.

Cheers and thanks for having me!

Hello!

I'm from the UK and have been brewing for around four years. First three years I used canned kits, then the last year I've been doing extract - now I'd like to move to all-grain, and BIAB seems like a good fit for me. I like my brewing simple, with the least fuss and the least mess!

I first heard about BIAB from Greg Hughes' book, Home Brew Beer, but I really became interested in it after reading about it on Brulosophy, which linked here.

Being one of those people who likes to understand the theory before I try it out, I'm looking forward to learning more about BIAB in preparation for taking the plunge into all-grain brewing.

Cheers,

Hi Broin, welcome aboard! BIAB is awesome I agree :) There are lots of clever solutions here, BIABacus is many all in one spreadsheet. As far as lack of efficiency, I think you may find that is a myth with BIAB in most cases, unless 85% or higher (kettle efficiency) is lacking compared to what you are used to. Anyway, lots of info here and lots of helpful BIABers, I hope you find the solutions you seek. Happy Brewing!

Hello BIABers! I began brewing extracts years ago but got out due to the low quality results and labor involved in bottling. This time around I'm going straight to extracts and kegs and BIAB seems the way to go for both simplicity and equipment cost. From what I've seen so far this board is THE home of BIAB and will be my "go to" resource. Thanks to everyone for sharing their knowledge. Hopefully I can contribute something eventually - even if it's my mistakes!

Hey Charliezoner,

Welcome to the forum! I had a similar path to BIAB. In the old days, some were good, some bad and some mediocre. And I hated bottling. Told myself would only go back to it with Kegging. That's what I do now. My results with BIAB are much better! (Of course I've studied a ton, much reading the Biabrewer.info forums here, books and communication with other Brewers here, etc.).

Anyhow, welcome and let us know what questions you have.
