I'd be more worried that she's a member here. I'm suprised she hasn't seen this whole thread already...

Glad it went well!!

You should maybe have done some reading ahead if you realized it was an AG recipe, you could have done it BIAB, there's a ton of threads on it.

As to the Sugar, in Belgian and many other styles of beers, it is added to add fermentables without increasing the body of the beer. It raises gravity without making the beer fuller. The best example is to compare a Belgian Dubbel and a Barleywine, both have around the same gravity, the same abv, but they are two different beers in terms of body. Barleywines are thicker, and heavier beers, some like liqeurs, while Dubbels and Triples are thinner in body....and that's because some of the fermentables are simple sugars.

not sure what the norm is, but i know plenty of BIAB'ers who don't mash in full volume and who sparge. i regularly hit over 80% efficiency by mashing 1.33qt/lb, then dunking the mashed grains in another pot of water @ 168*F (aka sparging). mashing at full volume means that the enzymes are too diluted and might not make contact with all the starches.

i realize this might not be the original way australians developed BIAB, and i'm not saying this is the "right way"... just wanna make folks aware of the alternatives.

I think you need to switch to AG brewing. There is at least an hour to kill during the mash.

No late boil extract additions?

Play it safe - filter out that nasty trub. Be sure to put a grain bag over the 'ol racking cane.
