Default Tried my first BIAB today.

After 30 or so all grain batches, I decided to give BIAB a shot. I am totally stoked with the results. I hit 82% efficiency with a regular crush. Also, it was less labor intensive than with my mash tun. I think I may be converting...

You don't have to convert, you could just alternate methods..........nah, that would be too confusing. Just convert.

BIAB is the simplest way to do all grain. I'm sold/hooked.

I did my first biab yesterday. I was a strictly extract brewer by I am hooked on biab. Its so easy and yet I always had this big fear of going all grain lol. Much cheaper than extract as well. I brewed a cream ale and it smells so good

I brewed my first American IPA. I really enjoy that it's a 3 gallon batch vs 5+ gallons. It takes me a long time to get rid of 5 gallons. This will be a nice change of pace and I think it will diversify my fridge inhabitants. I'm looking forward to doing a few more BIAB in the future to see what kind of end results I can obtain.
