So my first brew is conditioning in bottles right now, it is a mr beer american classic light HME with an added lb of light DME. It was definitely an adventure and not because of any technical brewing mistakes but because of kids who put ice cubes and toilet paper inside the lbk during the cold crash two days prior to bottling. Needless to say I was able to recover and the beer is clear as water conditioning in bottles now.
SWMBO gave the go ahead on moving up to a 5 gallon setup and after doing TONS of reading I think I am going to start doing BIAB. The sticky here on it is amazing and very thorough and easy to understand, thank you. I went on the website of my LHBS and basically picked out all the equipment that I believe that I will need to start a pipeline for myself. I do have a 6.5 gallon aluminum pot already that I plan on using and it "should" be big enough for the BIAB. I didn't include a burner because I will try my stove top first. I'm trying to start out as simple as possible and then add for there as the need arises. So if you don't mind taking a look and letting me know where I might be missing a necessity please let me know. I am super excited to be moving up to 5gallon BIAB batches.
