BREWHA is trusted by these breweries

to kickback, relax, and enjoy your brew day instead of running around cleaning, sanitizing and chasing your tail. Best brewing investment ever and worth every penny. I have the medium BIAC now and definitely plan on adding a large BIAC to my collection one day. Nathan has a great high quality product and is extremely helpful and responsive to any questions you may have."

"The BREWHA BIAC has a really great mash temperature control system so your mash temperature is held consistent…electric element and recirc….it has more control that we even use in our mash tun in the brewery so you can definitely make reproducible mashes, really dial in the mash temperature, have the correct amount of body and attenuation that you are looking for... Another benefit of the BREWHA BIAC is the sanitation point—as far as the jacketed chiller, as opposed to running through a plate chiller, I suppose the breweries will use one, but the small ones are an absolute nightmare to clean, to backflush and some of them aren’t really designed well for it. This thing is really easy to clean. I’ve had no problems with contamination from batch to batch. The manufacturing quality is fantastic. The steel is really good, the welds are polished, it’s super easy to clean."

"Other reviewers have noted that Nathan at Brewha is helpful and easy to query. That statement is underselling him and their service by a mile. He is handily the best resource for insight and help I have met in brewing. Period."

This has been exactly what I needed. The operation of the cooler itself is very easy to understand and the existing hoses that shipped with my BIAC fit fine for recirculating the water from the chill well to the jacket and back out the exhaust port and into the chiller. I put my BIAC right up against the edge of the box that the chiller is on and the longish tube from sparging feeds water from the pump while the blowoff tube is short enough to just return the water right to the well.
A couple of key tips to be successful: 1. You need a long blowoff tube. I use a 7', 1/2" silicon tube, because the air headspace on a 10G batch will shrink considerably when you cool the wort and in my case it drew the Star-San back into the wort a couple of times before I figured it out. 2. The cooler is both large and heavy and needs airflow. In my garage, that was a challenge until I built a little dais for it to sit on. The first Helles is drinking great!

I chose the BREWHA BIAC after carefully considering RIMS, HERMS and Brewing Tree systems. I wanted to brew indoors, electric, not gas and without modifying my home to accommodate my brewery. The Small BIAC gave me that with a small footprint - under 2 foot diameter in all. It easily completely rolls into a closet when not in use, plugs into a regular 120 volt, 15 amp outlet and residential water supply. I can step mash, vorlauf, sparge, boil, chill, pitch and ferment all in one conical vessel and be done. Start to finish inside 5 hours.
The entire shipment arrived in 2 well made wooden crates and was assembled and ready for a water run in 1 hour.
"I wanted to let you know how impressed and pleased I am with my BIAC. I made my first brew a few weeks ago and the 3in1 performed beautifully. Being able to Mash, Boil and Ferment all in one vessel made my brew day shorter and more enjoyable. Controlling mash temperatures precisely is a great advantage. By using the power of 240v with a 5500W heating element as on your system, just kicks it up a notch. Having a rheostat on the power box (not having to fiddle with the digital controller) to control the amount of roll in the boil I found helpful.
Having a water jacket for cooling, and maintaining the fermentation temperature is a fine addition. The large surface area, less chance for contamination and not having to clean a plate chiller, priceless…well almost.
The 3in1 will allowed me to sell and down size a bunch of my brewing equipment. I don’t need carboys, chillers, buckets, ice chests and a refrigerator taking up space.
After fermentation and transferring to kegs, I had an easy cleanup and placed all of the fittings, valves, hoses and control box into the colander and rolled the 3in1 into a closet.
Cheers to you!!
