BIAC Benefits

The BIAC makes brewing simpler, easier and more enjoyable.

Some of the benefits of this system include:

  1. Perfect sanitation every time—with the fermenter doubling as the 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, saving time, money, and likely even improving the beer's flavor
  2. Brews beer in 30% less time—with less vessels to setup and take down, and less steps in the brewing process (e.g. transferring water/wort) there is a significant savings in time 
  3. 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)
  4. Full control—with temperature sensors and automated valves, there is maximum control over every detail in the brewing process
  5. Smallest brewing footprint—mashing of grain occurs directly in the fermenter, removing the need for a separate hot liquor kettle, mash tun and boil kettle
  6. Small storage footprint—when not brewing, the entire assembly can store away in the fermenter
  7. Faster cleanup—unlike chemical sanitizers which 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
  8. Economical—even though it is made with highest quality materials, since there are less vessels and less supporting hardware needed it costs less than a full, traditional 4 vessel system
  9. Fully electric—faster, quieter, more precise, and allows for indoor brewing
  10. Easy temperature regulating during fermentation—the built-in jacket on the fermenter  and the Temperature Control Valve allows for easy fermentation temperature regulation
  11. 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 used that can harbor microbes
  12. Full temperature control for all batch sizes—since the jacket covers the entire inside wall, even small batches can be temperature controlled
  13. 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; works exactly like a standard mash tun.
  14. 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.
  15. 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
  16. 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
  17. 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)
  18. Full inside access—the large diameter lid provides full and easy access to your vessel for thorough inspection/cleaning after fermentation
  19. Heavy duty stainless steel construction—will hold resale value and provide a lifetime of brewing enjoyment
  20. Easy to move—Heavy duty wheel castors make moving the fermenter easy; very useful if space needs to be multi-purposed
  21. Detachable heating element cords—so the cords won't be a tripping hazard when not in use
  22. Highest quality sanitary fittings and valves—super easy to disassemble and reassemble for storage or thorough cleaning
  23. No threaded or weld-free or bulkhead fitting—they can leak and are difficult to disassemble and clean
  24. No lips or crevices—makes cleanup easy 
  25. Mirror polish finish—the smoothest stainless steel finish possible making cleanup easy
  26. Convenience—the BREWHA BIAC package has all the equipment you need to begin brewing. And it fits neatly away when not in use
  27. Enjoyment—all these benefits make brewing an extremely enjoyable and rewarding process
