The quest for a new setup

Post #1 made 1 month ago
So this is where I will chronical the quest for a new eBIAB setup.

First, some background. I have been brewing for over 10 years now. Started out doing extract on a stove. Then to a fry pot, burner and cooler. a then to electric keg with a cooler, then, a 3 vessel eHERMS.
I then took the 3 vessel system and removed a pot, and set up to run as either a single vesseleRIMS/BIAB or a Brutus Countertop 20. Every one of those I built from the ground up myself. I took a lot of time, energy and pride designing and building them.

I have moved 3 times, taking whatever system was current to the new location, one move was from Belgium to Colorado...…

This last move, was a downsizing move and I just do not have room for the 2 vessel rig anymore. So I am moving to SVB, eBIAB style.
going with this as the base of the system https://www.highgravitybrew.com/store/p ... 5p3987.htm
I have no desire to build again.

I have my pumps and plate chiller from the 2 vessel so that is moving forward with me.
There are some changes that I know already I will make, but it should be ready to run out of the box, with the equipment I already have.

I want to be brewing again by July, it has been to long already.

Awesome stuff. I am just about to move into a new brewshed and will be converting to ebiab.
I look forward to watching your progress and picking up some ideas.

so, I ordered a 3 roller grain mill, prolly over kill for BIAB, but it is what it is and what I wanted.
Only problem is that one end plate was really messed up and I am waiting to see what the manufacture is going to do about it....

I have also submitted a "make offer" for 2 24v DC pumps to further shrink the total size of my system.

Just pulled the trigger on the High Gravity eBIAB system. Basic configuration, only change was an extra hole drilled so I can add a whirlpool. Because it has a basket, the whirlpool will have to be mounted low.

Working with Dave and Desiree at High Gravity has been awesome. They were extremely patient and answered every question quickly. Their eStore Front has a chat feature, and using it was a seamless process.

I am super excited to have it on order and can't wait until it arrives. Will be after next weekend because I am off to Estes Park for some camping!!!

I've been thinking of the Wort Hog myself. Looks like a great system. Are you getting the whole kit with the boil coil and pump?

Got the 5-10 gallon 240v system, with all the standard items. I did not get a pump because I already have one, well 4 actually.
2 chugger pumps, one will be the pump I start with, and 2 24v DC, small tan pumps that I will use once I get a few more parts.

The 24v tan pumps can be found on Ebay, I got both for $30US shipped and it only took about a week. I used the "Make an Offer" and saved a few bucks
