I successfully brewed a Hopslam clone (recipe here
) that required 21.5 pounds of grain and 8.5 gallons of water in the kettle. The mash was about 1-inch from the top of the kettle when mashing. This would be the maximum for this particular equipment setup.
Note: I added an extra pound of base malt over what the recipe called for to make up for lower efficiency that is typical with no-sparge BIAB. Total grain used was 21.5 pounds.
This is probably the best beer I've made to date. I highly recommend this recipe to anyone who likes Bell's Hopslam.
