The video below shows just how easy it is to do a BIAB inside a cooler. No longer do you need to lift a heavy grain bag; just open the valve and let gravity work its magic. In this video I did a full volume mash (added my total water needed directly to the mash), then simply drained the runnings back into the kettle. It’s as simple as opening the valve, and letting the mash tun drain completely. This leaves behind equal to – or less than the amount of wort left behind with a “standard” cooler mash tun . In this cooler I use a 90* elbow for the pickup, allowing it to suck every last drop of wort out of the mash tun. The cooler BIAB saves you time on cleanup, eliminates the need for a vorlauf as well as the worry of a stuck sparge.
The “premium” bag is now available for purchase! Featuring a ring of 1″ webbing around the opening, your choice of handles or tabs, and a velcro strap to secure the bag to your kettle – this bag makes your brew day that much easier, and helps to prolong the life of your bag.
The new “premium” bag is available for pots, keggles, and cylindrical coolers. Order yours now for only $30.00 CAD!
Good news! We just finished production on a new bag prototype and will be testing it over the next couple of weeks. The prototype bag retains the same shape as our current bags, however, it has webbing attached to the top edge with velcro on the end for fastening to your kettle.
