So I am taking it this would work well as my first all-grain brew..?

Without going deep into reading 100+ pages.. Will the BIAB method work good on this one..?

I agree, I'm not sure what your asking about adjustments. Just follow the recipe!

I've heard of some people adding about 1 lb of base malt to account for very low efficiency with BIAB. However, if I do a very fine crush I get 75% or a little better with BIAB. Therefore I don't really think that's necessary.

As a side note, I have this recipe in primary right now. I can't wait to taste it!

I have my first gallon of this cold crashing. It's the first time I've tried to make something like a really light ale or lager in about 10 years - and my gawd, as it sits in the cold and clears...wow. It looks amazing. It's like a yeasty upside down lava lamp of beery goodness.

Thank BM and everyone on this thread for the recipe and inspiration!

I do not want to hyjack this thread but I am interested in your BIAB thing . I brew small amounts , a couple pounds or so for adding to no boil kits . I just crush them as normal and steep them in a gallon or so of water for 45 minutes and pour through a strainer into bucket . Would this be about the same end as BIAB ?
