    Gday All.

    Just wondering if anyone has had any experience with using the Digiboil from Kegland as a vessel for partial mash. I'm looking at stepping up to AG eventually but would like to try partial mash first.

    Cheers

    You could do it, but would be a pretty inefficient way of doing it. (Expensive and hard to maintain heat)

    If you want to do partial mash, just get a cheap stockpot(15l from kmart or 19l from Big W) and use a job to heat and oven to maintain temp. If you get one you’ll find useful when you move to AG.

    Conversely, it’s not much of a jump from partial mash, so why not get a Digiboil and go straight to BIAB?

    Gday Half-baked. I started to have a bit more of an in depth look at BIAB today and it seems like a much better idea! I will do a bit more research and go down that path me thinks.

    Cheers

    Good move @axematt! You won’t look back.

    Keep it simple at first and in no time you’ll be making some great beer
