Peco electrim boiler best bag for

Postby Wekslap » Mon Oct 24, 2016 12:54 am

Please does anyone know the best size and brand mashing and sparging bags to buy for to use in the 33 litre plastic peco electrim boiler? I have a Ritchies new mashing and sparging bag 26 cm deep but doesn't seem very deep to me. What do any other peco electrim boiler owners use please?

Hi - I have the same boiler and same bag. Does the trick perfectly. I've had over 6kg grain in there - remember you don't want it too low or you risk scorching on the element.

Injac. Are you referring to the same bag I've got? The Ritchies New mashing and sparging bag length 26 cm?

Yup - The Ritchies New Mashing and Sparging Bag.

It took me a couple of brews to get to know the electrim. One thing I would watch for is scorching of the element - so keep stirring the wort when waiting for it reach boiling temps and if doing in excess of 100g of hops then use a hopsack. If you can find one of the Universal Hop Strainers that will fit into the back of your tap and stop any tap blockages.

Keep the lid on when heating up and lag it all with a sleeping bag.

Any specific questions just PM me.

Thanks Injac. I am a BIAB beginner. I've only done one brew so far in it and bag didn't seem to go down very far. I have the digital peco electrim boiler masher.

How do people find this boiler? I read somewhere that people found it kept cutting out on the boil. Have you guys had any issues? - or are you really pleased with it? Thanks.

It took a few brews to get to know it. What I will say is keep stirring between end of mash and getting up to full boil. Any trub that settles on the element can lead to a burnt batch.
