I moved from BIABag to BIABasket and I couldn't be happier with the portability and efficiency of it all. I added quick removable insulation, a quick disconnect, and pump for mashing full volume at roughly 75% efficiency without sparging. I have a controller running an upright freezer as a fermentation chamber with four 5 gallon square fermenters to maximize space and facilitate easy in place racking when needed. I still bottle everything as space doesn't allow an additional kegerator.

I'm curious to see everyone else's Basket setup.

That basket is sweet. May I ask where you found one and how many pounds it will hold?
Thanks, Rob

That is a small DC pump I was using for a while to recirculate. It worked well for low gravity beers where the temp stayed under 160 degrees, so mash only. It did however get frequently gummed up with wort and I have since moved to a chugger. There is a thread on that pump here:

I would avoid using that pump and just save for a chugger.

Hi everibody,
I'm also moving to BIABasket with a pump, etc., but I don't know how to set it up in Beersmith, is there any place to learn to do it?
I guess that it has to be diferent from BIAB profile.
Thanks.
Xavi
