Stovetop RIMS BIAB

Post by sleepyjamie » Thu Nov 24, 2016 8:06 pm

Could be used as a small RIMS BIAB stove top system.

I grabbed one of the wifi units at CAD$149 a couple months ago and couldn't be happier (and I've only cooked eggs with it). I will be experimenting with small batches on the stove at some point I just haven't gotten there yet. I'm pretty sure there's at least one review of using it for brewing online.

Very cool idea. I might be able to sell my partner on this for sous vide cooking... But inevitably she'll still find out that I really wanted it for brewing. :lol:

I was thinking I would buy a Grainfather after I moved here to Winnipeg this summer but it just isn't fitting into the budget. I'm going to go the 10-12L stovetop BIAB route for now and this little gadget would be a really nice addition to that setup. It seems like the major issue is keeping the grain out of the thing, but people are using grain bags or metal sieves and having success with one or the other. Being able to do precise step mashes is one of the main reasons I wanted the Grainfather in the first place!

Let me know how this works out. I do 25 litre batches but occasionally 10 litre stove top batches for experimentation.

So I picked up a hop strainer in one of the Black Friday sales with the hopes the Anova would fit into it. Turns out it's perfect, and thin enough that I can adjust both screws, so I could use it in a bigger pot as well. My only concern is whether I can get enough flow through the strainer, but there's only one way to find out.

This is my signature. There are many like it, but this one is mine.

My plans to try this over the holidays did not pan out. I'm still hoping to give a small batch a go, but I don't know when it'll be.

I'm looking at it as a way to maintain mash temperature of a 5G BIAB batch ... appears there are enough people out there singing its praises. I'll post back once I get around to it.
