"Brew in a Bag", sometimes known as BIAB, is a simplified version of standard, three vessel All Grain brewing (and considerably less expensive than brewing using a Grainfather or Braumeister all-in-one set up) in which the grain is "Mashed" in a bag in the boiler and then removed. The resultant Wort is then boiled with hops. This eliminates the need to have a separate "Mash Tun" or undertake a "Sparge" so makes the whole process simpler and quicker. You can read about how the process is carried out on our "Brew in a Bag Brewing" page.
It can also be used to brew Malt Extract based recipes if you aren't quite ready to go completely into grain brewing or wish to reduce the overall process time.
Our "Brew in a Bag" starter equipment set contains everything you need to move onto All Grain Brewing from brewing with beer kits.

Whilst not essential (as you can leave the wort to cool overnight), a cooling coil makes the whole process a great deal quicker. Unless you live in a soft water area, you may also need to treat your water, so some Brupaks AMS and Brupaks DWB may be required.
As there are so many available recipes that enable you to try and match commercial brews (and more or less all can be made using either Grain or Malt Extract), we do not provide any ingredients with this equipment set, but can happily provide advice and most of the ingredients if you have are looking for a particular beer to brew. (Some of the currently popular American style IPAs and Craft Beers use VERY particular hops, specific grains and liquid yeasts, but we can normally suggest a viable alternative if we don't have EXACTLY the ones mentioned in your recipe)
