Brewing 5BBL of Craft Beer in the BREWHA BIAC

In this video you will see just how easy it is to use the BREWHA BIAC to brew 5BBL of craft beer. The BREWHA BIAC is an innovative brewing system that takes all of the control that was afforded through the traditional four pot method of brewing and puts it into one compact system. It takes up less footprint, is easier to clean, easier to setup, easier on brewday, and one of the major benefits is that by boiling the wort right inside the fermenter, you achieve perfect, chemical-free santiation every time.

The best way to clean and sanitize your stainless brewing equipment

One of the useful features of the BREWHA BIAC is that boiling can occur inside the fermenter which makes sanitation a snap—the heat of the boil will sanitize the fermenter so there is no need to chemically sanitize the vessel. All that is needed is to clean the fermenter out well with water and a soft cloth after the beer is removed, and it is ready to go for the next batch...

Preventing leaks and galling in the 4-in-1 fermenter

The 4-in-1 fermenter lid is held in place with eye bolts. Eye bolts are used over standard nuts as they are easier to open with fingers—no tools are necessary. However, when higher pressure is being applied to the vessel (up to 14.9psi), a tool is likely needed to tighten the lid down so it doesn't leak. For a tighter seal, a screw driver (or other steel bar) can be used to tighten the ring by...

Best practice for sparging with the BIAC

While not absolutely necessary, some brewers prefer to rinse or 'sparge' their grain at the end of the mash period to recover as much sugar as possible. While cold water can be used, it is generally recommended to use hot water at 75°C/167°F as sugars will be recovered more readily and the grain bed kept more fluid, allowing easier...

Heating and chilling methods for the 5BBL BIAC

There has been some discussion online about the benefit of circulating wort inside the BIAC fermenter during chilling to reduce the chill time so we put it to the test in our largest system, the 5BBL BIAC. We tested on the 5BBL, since being the largest system we currently offer, it has the lowest chilling surface area to wort ratio and therefore (all other factors being equal) the longest chill time of the BIAC systems.
