All Grain Brewing / DIY BIAB efficiency
« on: January 23, 2018, 07:57:23 PM »
Hi all, i've made myself a BIAB system which looks like this:

I'm using SmartPID to control the whole process. It's 3kW heating element.
Since I've started to brew using this bh, the efficiency dropped to 49% (it was 75% when i was using a coolbox mash tun and electric kettle). I thought it could be the grain crush (was 0,05). I've tried 0,04 and it didn't help. I thought it could be the mashing (i used to do just mash in, keep it on 67 C and than mash out), so I've tried to do step mash... And it didn't help. It's a pity to brew with this kinda efficiency. My last though was that I'm not doing fly sparge (as I used to do it with the coolbox), but this shouldn't result in such a huge drop from 75 to 49. Do you have any ideas / suggestions how to improve it?
Thank you in advance.

Hi guys,
I've developed a small online tool for reading beerXML files and generating human readable output. Maybe someone will find it useful. There might be some bugs though, because I simply can't test all the recipe varieties and options myself. You can find it here If you don't get output, please be so kind to forward me the recipe that causes the problem and I'll try to adjust the code to work properly.
