I brewed a batch yesterday as per the article in BYO. Bought a 24x24 grain bag from MORE BEER. Worked out great. Took a hose and squirted out all the grain afterward.

I'll taste the results in a month or so. I'm definately going to do this again. If nothing else, it's a good and easy introduction to all-grain brewing.

Which BYO issue is that? I've noticed a few homebrewers already mentioned said article.

I have tried BiaB once, and it was easy going. I used a 5-gal. paint strainer from the Home Depot.

Today I will taste said batch at a Real Ale party.

I've sewed up 2 bags and brewed 4 batches of BIAB


I've entered all 4 of them in the Bluebonnet BrewOff to get some feedback. At our recent Homebrew club social, all were well received and enjoyed.

I brewed Jamil's Belgian Pale Ale, American Amber and American IPA.

I pushed the system and did a 10 gallon batch of Blonde and found that 14 gallon pot is just a little small for all the liquid and grain so I did a modified BIAB.

Last year I experimented with no chill and had mixed results. Mostly I could not get the aroma in my beers without dry hopping them.

Other than that I think both of these techniques have merit and brewers should keep an open mind.

This is an interesting topic that is being discussed, some good points are made, and lots of things have been missed in this discussion that I'll have to get into later.

Id love to "no chill" in a conical... you could then drop out trub if you wanted to after say 24 hours.

I am itching to do this... wish I didnt have to go back to work soon.

Work is so intrusive, isnt it?

Since I generally make a 24 hour starter for larger beers... this will work perfectly.

I can collect some of my lighter runnings and use them to make a 24 hour starter. During the 24 hours that the wort is cooling in the HDPE container, the starter is getting amped up. When the wort is cool, the starter is ready to go... no more DME, fresh wort for the starter AND it is the same as my original brew.

It'd be really interesting to do a side-by-side experiment comparing BIAB with a traditional mash-tun. I've only ever done BIAB for my all-grain beers, so I don't know whether using a mash-tun would make much difference. I suspect it probably wouldn't, but has anyone ever heard of such a comparison?
