Here's the plan: I'm gonna brew 10 gallons of CB this weekend. 5 gallons will get nottingham, the other 5 will go on a Bavarian Lager cake. I have a funny feeling that this recipe will kick arss as a lager. Has anyone ever done it?

BIAB and sat in a bottle for 3 weeks. Great flavor!
Would brew again with a bit more carapils



The color on my photo is much darker that the actual brew is. Quite deceiving.

timbudtwo, could you share your BIAB procedure for this brew? I have the ingredients ready to go. I have paint bags from Lowes and a 5 gallon pot. This would be my first BIAB / All Grain of any kind.

Thanks,

Txinga

Was my first all grain / BIAB too.
First, I lined my brew pot with my paint liners (I used two just in case.) My brew pot is 7 gallons so I was able to put in almost 5 gallons. I had 6 gallons measured out because I lose about 1 gallon during my boil.

Anyway,
1. Lined the pot
2. Threw in grain
3. Filled with water
4. Brought up to 150 (I was about 149-153 for the entire hour of mash)
During the mash I insulated the pot with a couple towels to keep the heat in. I left a very small hole in the top so that I could have a digital thermometer sitting in the top so I could watch the temp.
5. Stirred about every 5-10 minutes
6. Once mash was done I pulled the bag out and set it in the bucket that had the rest of my water in it. Sparged in that. And by sparge I mean I let that sit till it wasn't piping hot and then had a buddy hold the bag and I squeezed out as much yums from it as I could. (http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f39/sque...ml#post2029310) Then I threw all that into the brew pot.

7. Proceed with recipe as normal.


My insulated brewpot, hooked up to my grills NG line.

Thank you Beermuncher for this recipe! I had been trying to decide what to brew my little brother for his birthday party and this seems like a winner. For some reason, all of my other beers seem to scare his friends

The way you phrase this makes it sound like your little brother and his friends are teenagers.

timbudtwo,
Did you increase the grainbill for the BIAB method? If so, by how much?

Default this is still my favorite


Just knocked out 24 more gallons of this last weekend on a marathon, 2 batch 11 hour brewday. Weirdest thing too, out of the 4 fermenters I filled up, one of them took off before the others and it's the only one that all the junk dropped to the bottom already but the airlock is still bubbling? I used safale 04 on all of them too, but from 2 different homebrew stores. Nice to create 200+ beers in one day!

I'll drink the suspicious one first, as an example to the others...

In the process of making this now and noticed that I had Windsor yeast instead of nottingham. Would Safale SO 5 be ok?
