Additional Benefits of The Brew Bag® for Coolers
You can also use the The Brew Bag™ as a complete Brew In A Bag NO SPARGE mash tool.

You may need a bigger mash tun for this process.

This bag works exactly as advertised. I made a beer that's was 66% rye and wheat with 2lbs of rice hulls without this bag and the mash would not run out no matter what i did. I made the same beer with 1lbs of rice hulls using this bag and the mash ran out without any problems. There was no reduction in the flow of the wort and no reduction in extraction or mash efficiency. I can now mash any grain bill without worry. I don't know why I didn't start using this sooner.
I’ve only used it once but I think it and the pulley system work extremely well. Cleans up easy in the clothes washer.
I place the bag in my Home Depot round mash tun and my first runnings have no debris at all, no stuck mash even with 70% flaked wheat in my Hefeweizens. No grain to clean up in my cooler. The bag is very easy to clean and is handy to carry the spent grains to the trash. One of the best purchases I ever made to my system.
Used this a few times now, should have done it long ago. No need to vorlauf anymore. I was surprised at how clear the wort ran with this bag. Clean up is very simple but I do suggest getting the pulley setup to remove and drain the bag.
I am not set up for full volume BIAB and like my Gott mash tun. I purchased this to mash with oats and flaked grains which typically stick with my false bottom. This worked flawlessly with 2 beers with oats and improved my efficiency to 80% with my batch sparge. I also like the fact it runs almost clear immediately and I can double crush my grain for added efficiency. Finally, it cleans up easily and is extremely well made.
