Default Recommend recipe for first BIAB

I made a couple batches with extract kits, and now I'm drowning in mediocre stout. I want to try all-grain BIAB method with my 7.5 gallon turkey fryer, but I need a recipe. Something lighter, lightly hoppy, more summery/refreshing, and something others will enjoy more since many of my friends drink amerilager and don't like my stout. Also, I have a whole bunch of US-05 I would like to use.

I will buy everything from my LHBS but I need to know what to buy.

this sounds like exactly what you need, just use the S-05 instead of notty if you want: http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f66/centennial-blonde-simple-4-all-grain-5-10-gall-42841/

Do EdWort's Haus Pale Ale:

http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f66/bee-cave-brewery-haus-pale-ale-31793/

Or DeathBrewer's SMASH APA:

http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f12/smash-apa-87816/

Both simple recipes, light body, lightly hopped, summertime refreshing, and would be great with S-05 instead of Notty.

For BIAB, you can either just use the full water volume and just heat to mashout, or do a "BIAB Sparge" by heating the sparge water in a separate pot and either soaking the bag in the new pot for about 10 minutes then pouring and draining it in the original mash, or just slowly pour the sparge water through the bag as it is suspended above the mash then drain well. The rest of the recipes and procedures are the same as the normal AG recipes.

I might do the separate sparge method just to save mash volume, because 7.5gal is going to be pretty close to full if I try to do full-volume.

Amerilager

80% Pale Malt/20% Flaked Maize (90/10 Pale/Carapils for you don't want maize)
Magnum @60min/Hallertauer @15min for 20 - 24 IBU
US05 @ 61-62F

The simpler the better for the first time. Less variables to consider and reflect upon.

Enjoy.

http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f62/cream-three-crops-cream-ale-66503/ is a great choice for first BIAB. you'll get great efficiency, plus it's a beer that even people who don't like home brew will love. light, not hoppy, crisp, good for these hot summer months. last one I did a keg was drained in an evening at a friends party. That was with an even split of home brew drinkers and BMC people.

+1. This is my first BIAB effort and it turned out great.

I also BIAB in a 7.5 gallon Turkey fryer pot. This is the only recipe I have done twice.

http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f66/da-yoopers-house-pale-ale-100304/

Very nice beer.

Mash with 6 gallons of water with about an 11lb grain bill. 2 more gallons heated to about 190 in a 5 gallon bucket that you put the grain bag in after the mash. Heat original wort to 175 and place bag back in for sparge. Pull bag and combine all liquid. You will have 6.5-7 gallons pre boil. I let the bag cool in the bucket and add that liquid back during the boil. That will give you about 5.5 gallons and 75% efficiency.

Also hop utilization is better with such a large boil volume. I use this calculator to hit the suggested IBU

http://beercalculus.hopville.com/recipe

Remember to change the boil volume to 6-6.5
