Is a BIAB'er typically able to brew a standard MLT recipe without adjustment in terms of grain bill?
As I understand it, it should be successful on paper. Thinner mash offset by possibly finer grind, or something.
Thanks. Relax with a homebrew.
You will still have to adjust recipes for your efficiency, though. That's something you'll have to pin down through trial and error.
If this is your first shot at it, up the grain bill about 10 - 15%. Normally, a recipe is based upon 75% efficiency. Your first shot at BIAB, I'll guess you'll get somewhere around 65%. It's always better to be a little over than a little short.
When I do BiaB with a mash out, I hit 75% pretty much everytime.
