First BIAB went... OK. (with pics)
 
2 Attachment(s)

Completed my first BIAB tonight and thought I might share my experience and ask a few questions. Thanks to guys like "Seven" and their awesome no sparge pulley system, I was able to replicate this style rig. Also I big thanks to "Carrolte" who GAVE me a sheet of swiss viole in the Christmas spirit. I tried to document as much as possible to later correct any errors as there ended up being one, my efficiency. So here we go...

Doo's Pale Ale
Recipe:
8 lbs 2 row pale
5 lbs Munich 10
1 lb Crystal 60

1oz Northern Brewer @60 min
0.5oz Cascade @30 min
0.25oz Columbus @30 min
1oz Centennial @15 min
0.25oz Columbus @15 min
0.5oz Cascade @5 min
0.5oz Columbus @5 min

Results wanted...
70% Efficiency
1.073 OG
1.018 FG
78 IBU
7% ABV
12.4 SRM

Results recieved...
56% Efficiency
1.058 OG
1.015 FG
86.5 IBU
5.7 ABV
12.4 SRM

(obviously FG, IBU, SRM and ABV are estimates as I brewed this today)

I wish it were better but Im not that upset with my low efficiency due to how delicious this wort looked, smelled and tasted compared to my previous extract brews. Here were my steps...

Heat 8 gallons H2O to 175F

After 60min mashing I raised her up, gently pressed the grains with a sauce pan cover and let hang for 20min.
