A single kettle 38L Tri-Clamp based recirculating BIAB Set built with all Tri-Clamp components. For beginners and experts alike!

Note: The pictures show the 57L version of this product. 

Now includes an optional Blichmann Riptide pump instead of the standard MP-15 pump. With the Riptide pump you get better performance, an easier to use pump with more features, and outstanding quality from Blichmann Engineering. The Riptide pump is mounted beneath the brew table, keeping it neatly out of the way. I highly recommend this pump and have updated all 2 and 3 kettle system designs, making it an option for those systems too.

The BIAB solo premium is my favorite system and my first choice on a brew day. Simple, elegant, and time saving, but still technical enough to keep things interesting. BIAB is an extremely cost effective way to brew great beer while keeping your system as simple as possible. This is a very effective no-sparge method that will also save precious time during your brew day. Built to last using easy to clean Tri-Clamp fittings. Fully disassemble your brewery to clean everything thoroughly as desired; the fast Tri-Clamp connections make it easy.

See our product instructions page for detailed information about installation and the brew process.

System Design

This set improves upon the BIAB Solo Standard set to include a pump for recirculation during the mash and for whirlpooling after the boil. The included two piece whirlpool arm is used first as a return sparge arm to mix the grain during recirculation, then after the boil as a whirlpool arm. The included false bottom protects the mash bag from the heating element. When mashing is complete, simply hoist out the mash bag using the included pulley and remove the false bottom and stand using the included long handle hook. For boiling, you can use the top port of the kettle for our steam condenser (optional). Once boiling is complete you can use the included arm for a whirlpool. Once the whirlpool is complete, just pull off the arm to fill your fermenter. Add your choice of wort chiller (not included) and you are ready to go!

A trub dam is not included with the system. If you want to use a trub dam with this system, it will only fit when the dip tube is installed in the middle front port. In this location the kettle will be farther back on the brew stand, otherwise there is no difference in functionality.

Add the EINBREW 1V1P controller (optional) and you can set up to 9 mash stages and let the controller automate your mash schedule. By recirculating the wort during mashing you achieve stable mash temperatures without any risk of scorching. Note: The 1V1P controller is not compatible with our 3 kettle systems, so if you are considering an upgrade down the road, you might want to purchase the 3V2P now. When using the 3V2P with a single kettle system, you will need to unplug and move the heating element and temperature sensor to the brew kettle plug outlets on the 3V2P when you start the boil.

The heating element in this set includes a 3m connection cable with SCHUKO male plug, but does not come pre-wired to the element. Please consult a professional electrician. You must be sure to use an appropriate GFI outlet and circuit breaker sized for the load.

A trub dam is not included with the system. If you want to use a trub dam with this system, it will only fit when the dip tube is installed in the middle front port as shown above. In this location the kettle will be farther back on the brew stand, otherwise there is no difference in functionality.
Use the included arm first as a sparge return arm…
…and then later as a whirlpool arm and to fill your fermenter.
With the optional pump clamp and post, you can easily mount the Riptide pump to your brew table.
Or screw the optional Riptide pump directly to the underside of your brewing table.
For additional stability when using the MP-15 pump, you can mount the pump directly on the brew table. Note, this will make it messier when draining the line after mashing.

Batch Size

System efficiency is lower than with our Duo or Trio Systems. For German brewers, the System efficiency measured as “Sudhausausbeute” or SHA is around 55-60%.

The pre-boil volume capacity is 16-33L. Grain capacity is limited by your ability to lift the bag out. The included pulley should not be used for grain bills larger than 8 KG!

Small batch size: you can brew as small as 13L batches of 13P wort. You will want to reduce power to the heating element for very small batches.

Large batch size: You can expect to get up to 25L of 13P wort in the fermenter when boiling for 60 minutes. For higher gravity beers the maximum batch size will decrease. For example at 20P, with a 8KG grain bill, you can expect about 20L in the fermenter. Remember that when using the steam condenser in the kettle wall, you will restrict the boil size to maximum of about 26L.

Notes

The heating element in this set includes a 3m connection cable with SCHUKO male plug, but does not come pre-wired to the element. Please consult a professional electrician. You must be sure to use an appropriate GFI outlet and circuit breaker sized for the load.

There are quite a few all-in-one single kettle brew systems on the market these days. I wanted to offer one that is flexible enough to allow changing over to a 2 or 3 kettle system down the road, just in case! You can reuse every part of this set if you decide you want to build a multiple kettle system later. Perfect for when you don’t necessarily want to get locked into a single brew style. You can also build your own controller if that interests you. Finally, it also allows you to use all high quality Tri-Clamp components. It has a compact footprint and can be easily disassembled within minutes for cleaning after every brew day.

The Solo Premium system uses a very high quality mesh bag rather than a stainless steel mesh basket. The cost of designing and manufacturing a high quality stainless basket goes against the core concept of expandability. It would leave an expensive piece of unused equipment if you decide to upgrade to a 2 or 3 kettle system.
