absolutely. any recipe with less than 13 lbs of grain will work.

Sorry for a late reply to a question asked earlier. I call small batch all grain brewing "Mini All Grain." The recipes I order are mostly from Northern Brewer. I like them, reasonably priced in the All Grain section. Also, I love that they give ingredients so I could always just half their recipes if I wanted to.

I just picked up a pair of paint straining bags from Lowes the other day for less than $2. I'm sticking with the All Grain / Mini mash b/c they've produced the best beer so far, and are the cheapest. Cheap Good Beer.

Even if I step up to full AG, I may stay with the grain bags for simplicity.

Thanks for the great tutorial Death. Doesn't seem much different then the way I've been doing Mini-mash kits....so I'm thinking it won't be much more than to by one more big pot and I'm on my way...to at least experiment.... Thanks!!

Great post DB. This is a great way to get good beer without all the expensive equipment (this coming from sombody that HAS the equipment).

I mash this way quite a bit and the results have been great. It keeps me in the house with the SWMBO chatting it up, it saves a ton on propane (I was filling two 20lbs every two months), and it makes clean up a breeze.

It's funny that I now prefer this method vs. being outside all night. If anything, I'll mash/sparge on the stove while watching a movie with the SWMBO and then take the results outside to the beast and boil er' up.

I am pretty damn impressed that you can brew indoors on a stove like that.

I used to brew indoors with coolers, BUT, I boiled outside with my propane burner.

Id expect nothing less from DEATH himself

I am so fired up after reading this. I am going to grab my father in law's large aluminum pot and give AG a shot over the long weekend!

Death,
Could you also use a covered roaster pan with grain in a loosely tied 24x24 bag. Add water slightly above desired temp and place grain into oven at desired temp?

i would try to HIT my temp when i added grain and then MAINTAIN with oven.

Planning Oakham JHB for my next batch and my LHBS doesn't sell Extra Light DME. This seems like a good way to get the results without building a mash tun.

So when I plug the details into BeerSmith is this the profile called "Single Infusion, Light Body, Batch Sparge"? (The recipe calls for 2 row Pale Malt which I assume means light body.) For a 7.8lb grain bill it suggests 9.78QT @ 161F.
