Brewer’s Best BIAB Recipe Kits Are Back


Brew-In-A-Bag Kit
We have seen a lot of interest in the BIAB (Brew-In-A-Bag) method of all-grain brewing as it seems to be an attractive choice for brewers making the transition from extract brewing to all-grain brewing.  So since you asked, we’ve brought back the line of Brewer’s Best BIAB recipe kits. According to Brewer’s Best, this method has several advantages over traditional all-grain brewing:

  • Simple - The BIAB method is easy and ensures the best possibility of sucess for an extract brewer to brew an all-grain batch.
  • Ease of Entry - Very little equipment is needed. Just a 42 quart or larger pot, a propane burner and a very large grain bag
  • Space Saving - Homebrewers in urban dwellings appreciate the small footprint of the equipment needed for the BIAB method compared to the traditional all-grain method.
  • Less Time Consuming - With less equipment there is less setup and cleanup.


We have the following BIAB kits available. Derek points out that these kits work really well with the GrainFather, or other full-size all-grain brewing system. We have recalculated the mash and sparge water volumes for each kit to get you brewing.
