Just wrapped up my first all grain brew in a bag (BIAB) using this recipe.
I started with 7.5 gallons. Mashed in at 158, mostly stable 150 F temps in my boil kettle for 60 minutes, had to bring it up 3 F near the end. Pulled the bag afterwards and let it drain over a bucket for 15 minutes while I brought my wort to a boil.
Then I squeezed the bag nice and good and added remaining runnings from the grains. Followed the rest of the directions for hop additions, added a half whirfloc with the last hop addition at 5 minutes, cooled and siphoned to the fermenter while the notty hydrated. Pitched and now sitting in the fermenter.
Love the color and clarity from the hydrometer sample I got. Tasted great.
If I would have changed anything I would have started with more water to account for trub and boil off. Still dialing that in. Would have started with 8 gallons.
Never used notty, how long does it take to really get going?
I attached a pic collage from the day...
