Default Video - Stovetop BIAB 2-1/2 gal All Grain

I posted a video on YouTube that documents my first BIAB batch.

Electric Stovetop
BIAB
All Grain
2-1/2 gal

It's a simple process that beginners might find interesting.


We can never have too many photos or videos, right?

Nicely done ... except for the music. Making beer deserves rock & roll!

A few notes/questions:

First off, nicely done however I feel like it would be better if it ended with a picture of you passed out on the couch surrounded by bottles.
Just curious as to what kind of efficiency you get? I get about 60% but I don't sparge when I do small stove top batches.
Did I see you bottling filler/wand thing attached to your auto-siphon or were they just sitting in the empty bottling bucket together? If so you should drill that bottling bucket and put in a spigot to attach it to in there, it's way easier.
Finally, I dig the bluegrass!

Wow, did you only need to sparge with 2qts of water? Did you just put the bag in another pot and pour 2 qts of 170 degree water over it?

I'm not sure about my efficiency. According to the software that I used, on this first batch I got 86%, BUT I had taken the pre-boil specific gravity reading at 165F. I later learned that the reading could be off at that temp, even with the correction applied. This was my first batch (learning). My original gravity was 1.056 and the recipe called for 1.041, so something good must have happened. Ended up with 4.6% ABV.

For my next batch, I cooled the pre-boil sample down to 119F before taking the specific gravity reading. Got a 76% efficiency reading. Still ended up with 4.6% ABV after all was said and done, though.

Yeah, only 2 quarts. But, it was only a 2.5 gal batch. I set the bag on a strainer, resting over a pot.

I started with 3 gal for the mash. After the 2 qt. sparge and one hour boil, I ended up with 2.5 gal.

There's a hydrometer temp correction calculator I use. Sounds like you got something working for you if you hit over the recommended OG. Good job!
