BIAC Benefits

The BIAC complete brewing system makes brewing simpler, easier and more enjoyable.

Some of the benefits of this system include:

  1. Perfect sanitation every time—good sanitation (keeping unwanted microbes out) is the single most critical factor for producing great beer. With the BIAC fermenter doubling as a boil kettle, the heat of the boil will provide perfect, easy to achieve, chemical-free, heat sanitation every time. Chemical cleaners and sanitizers are not needed as they are with other brewing systems, saving time and money, and giving you peace of mind that your beer will taste its best
  2. Smallest brewing footprint of any brewing system—mashing of grain occurs directly in the fermenter, removing the need for a separate hot liquor kettle, mash tun and boil kettle
  3. Lowest water consumption—while traditional brew systems use approximately 6 volumes of water for every volume of beer produced, the BREWHA BIAC uses less than 2; with the heat of the boil sanitizing the system, the extensive chemical srubbing, cleaning, rinsing and sanitizing that wastes all that water is no longer needed
  4. Scaleable—with systems ranging from 30L/8gal to 1070L/280gal recipes developed in the small systems can be easily adapted/scaled up to commercial microbrewery production using the same brewing methods and techniques 
  5. Expandable—if more fermentation capacity is needed, simply add more BIAC fermenters—the Mash Colander can be used with each one
  6. Economical—even though it is made with highest quality materials, since there are less vessels, less supporting hardware and less installation expenses, it is significantly less expensive than a full, traditional 4 vessel system
  7. Shorter brew day—with less vessels to setup and cleanup, and less steps in the brewing process (e.g. transferring water/wort) there is a time savings of 10-25% 
  8. Flexibility—can produce all types of beer as the brewer has near infinite control over the brewing process (can also be used for producing wine and even spirits with the optional Condensing Assembly)
  9. Full control—with temperature sensors and automated valves, there is maximum control over every detail in the brewing process
  10. Small storage footprint—since high quality casters are included standard with all fermenters, when not brewing, the fermenters can be moved out of the way allowing even small commercial spaces to become highly productive breweries
  11. Faster cleanup—unlike chemical sanitizers which are necessary with other brewing systems but only sanitize surfaces (if sediment is not completely removed contamination can result from bacteria hiding beneath the surface), the heat of the boil sanitizes right through any missed sediment. So a good physical cleanup (removal of sediment) is all that is necessary—no chemical cleaners necessary; and less vessels means less cleanup
  12. Fully electric—faster, quieter, more precise, cheaper to install than gas-fired systems and allows for indoor brewing
  13. Fully safety certified—temperature and power controllers are CSA inspected and certified (UL recognized)
  14. Easy temperature regulating during fermentation—the built-in jacket on the fermenter  and the Temperature Control Valve (or Water Chiller) allows for easy temperature regulation during fermentation
  15. Most sanitary chilling of wort—the built-in jacket on the fermenter also allows for the easiest and most sanitary chilling of wort; no hoses or plates or coils are necessary
  16. Full temperature control for all batch sizes—since the jacket covers the entire inside wall, even small batches can be temperature controlled unlike some systems which use an internal coil that might not reach low enough for smaller batches
  17. Full mashing capability—the solid stainless steel walls of the Mash Colander allow for fly sparging and a proper filter bed to form giving providing perfect clarity in your wort
  18. Risk of oxidation and microbial contamination is almost completely eliminated—by having capacity for heating, chilling and fermenting built right into the fermenter there is less movement of wort/beer that can facilitate oxidation and less hardware used that can introduce microbes.
  19. Easy trub removal—the conical bottom allows for easy removal of trub (protein, yeast and other solids) from your fermenter either prior to fermentation, during, or after fermentation is complete
  20. Full temperature control—a ferrule (port) in the vessel allows for insertion of temperature sensing probes and complete temperature monitoring; an ETC controller maintains temperature within 1°F of target
  21. Easy racking (transferring) of beer—a second port in the lid allows for pressurizing the fermenter when racking to a keg to overcome any height differences (keg above the fermenter won't fill just with gravity) and ensure your beer is not exposed to oxygen (maximum pressure in 'Homebrewery' fermenter is 3psi in vessel and 5psi in jacket; 14.9psi in vessel and 7psi in jacket of 'Microbrewery' fermenter)
  22. Full inside access—the large diameter lid provides full and easy access to your vessel for thorough inspection/cleaning after fermentation
  23. Heavy duty stainless steel construction—will hold resale value and provide a lifetime of brewing enjoyment
  24. Easy to move—Heavy duty wheel casters make moving the fermenter easy; very useful if space needs to be multi-purposed
  25. Detachable heating element cords—so the cords won't be a tripping hazard when not in use
  26. Highest quality sanitary fittings and Non-retention ball valves—super easy to disassemble and reassemble for cleaning (no wrenches are necessary)
  27. No threaded or weld-free or bulkhead fitting—they can leak and are difficult to disassemble and clean
  28. Mirror polish finish—the smoothest stainless steel finish possible making cleanup easy and yeast will settle to the bottom of the cone where it can be removed
  29. Convenience—the BREWHA BIAC package has all the equipment you need to begin brewing. And it fits neatly away when not in use
  30. Patent protection—since our brewing system is fully patent protected, as a customer, you can rest assured that you won't be sued for patent infringement, or lose product support
  31. Enjoyment—all these benefits make brewing an extremely enjoyable and rewarding process and produce the highest quality beers
