Default Rye beer

Not a huge deal, just that it takes away some head space for fermentation, depending on what you're fermenting in. If you could run the wort through a screen first, and maybe you do that, I could see that helping a lot.

I've heard the trub issue but I don't really see a difference. I don't mill finer if I'm doing BIAB and I use very fine voile bags from Wilserbrewer. I also use his hop bags no matter how I'm brewing. So, I really don't see more trub.

I used to BIAB with paint strainers and a corona mill and I had wayyyyy more!

My efficiency is between 77-85% depending on style ...and btw..back on topic, I also love rye beers!
