Brew in a Bag System

  • One vessel trebles up as a hot liquor tank, mash tun and kettle (boiler).
  • BIAB offers a far lower equipment cost
  • Less equipment means less space needed and quicker clean-up
  • Less time investment making your fermentable wort
  • Quick and simple process
  • Produces as good a result as full mash brewing

System cost is as follows

  • Stainless pot 34L: $150
  • Grain bag: $24.00
  • Wortchiller: $212.00
  • Thermometer: $15.80
  • Bought as a complete kit: $360.00
