I used the brupaks for biab and it works perfect for full volume brews. It's a 30 ltr volume pot. I have posted it in the forsale if you'd like to see it Jon

I do like the idea of making my own stuff, I recently made a Wort Chiller.. Cost me £43 to make it and then beer hawk went and had a 50% off sale, and now they're £35! So it kinda backfired.. was fun to make though. The problem is I don't have time to make much else...

I bought stock kit for the rest though.

I think my biggest concern really, is my burner. It looks and feels a little flimsy, and with a huge pot and 30+L of water in it, it worries me.

As you say, maybe the best option is to heat up my strike water first of around 19L and while the mash is resting... heat up the sparge water. Means less boiling water in one go... that said, I still need to boil the wort! Which is going to be all the liquid nearly anyway.

It was;

4.6KG of Pale Malt

50g Challenger @ 60min
18g EKG @ 10
10g Bobek @ Flame Out

I do a 60\60 mash & boil

It's based on the Graham Wheeler recipe.
