Default I wrote a free eBook on BIAB, check it out

Hi guys,

I'd like to start out by saying thanks for the support over the years and helping get me up to speed in the brewing world. This is a fantastic community for the homebrewer that only seems to be getting better!

I figured it was time to give back to the homebrewing community so I wrote a free eBook that focuses around BIAB, no chill and utilization of dry yeasts. It is geared toward the brewer that wants to do all grain as simple as possible.

I've managed cut my brew day time in half, up my efficiency and have more fun brewing with this method.

UPDATE: I started a new business and changed websites. The new link to download the ebook can be found here

Check it out and let me know what you think. I'm all ears for suggestions

Forgot to mention...

Extra thanks goes out to Greg Stiffler for his calculator, Edwort and BierMuncher for their fantastic recipes.

Got a Cream of Three Crops carbin in the keg for Easter Sunday

Cheers.

Great read. Leaves out the BS and gets strait to the point. My only comment is the file size. I bet if you optimized the images you could cut it in half.

Thanks rhamilton for the kind words and your feedback. The software I used to compose it allows for compression. What file size would you like to see?

I'd like for the images to be as clear as possible as a lot of people are using tablets to view .PDF's these days. I just got the new iPad with retina display and reading on the thing is a pleasure. So clear.

Perhaps a viable option would be to offer up the current uncompressed version along with something a bit smaller for people with slower connections.

Thoughts?

Just downloaded it, look forward to reading it tonight.

iBooks Author, I'm assuming? Only taken a cursory glance, can't wait to check it out. Next batch will be BIAB, your timing couldn't have been more perfect.

I'll take a look tomorrow since I'm already having some beers.

Another question: why can't you rack directly to the fermenter instead of the cube? It seems like the cube is just a cooling vessel which is another thing to clean and sanitize. Why not rack directly to the fermenter or just keep it in the kettle overnight?

You got it. iBooks author is what I used. Made on a Mac Mini 2011, pictures were taken with iPhone 4S. I believe the phone has a 8 megapixel camera so it takes pretty pictures.

I wasn't always an Apple fanboy but you can't argue when it just works. I used to build all my own computers and I generally find macs break less. As an undergraduate I worked at at Apple and PC retail shop so I don't discriminate.
