    Here's a fermentation time lapse of my Pumpkin Ale. I screwed up my calculations for volumes
    doing BIAB and came up about a gallon short!! Still smells yummy out of the airlock! The two
    packs of Proof...

    Quick question, I'm going to brewing this tomorrow (BIAB) and I want to make sure I'm
    calculating my volumes correctly. I have the 4lbs Libby's pumpkin, but I'm not sure how to
    adjust my water volume ...

    I have an 8 gal kettle and boiloff is 1.5g/hr. For an 8 lb grain bill and a 90 min boil, I'd be
    looking at 8.08 gal mash tun volume (obviously, I'd need to do a sparge, since my kettle is
    only 8 gal) ...

    So, I have a bayou classic 36qt (9G) SS kettle that I have been wanting to use for my BIAB
    sessions. I've done a few 2.5G batches in a similar vessel, but I'm ready to brew a rather
    simple Cream Ale B...

    OMG! Now that the holidays are over, I realized I never came back to the group and filled you
    in. What an A$$! Sorry. Anyway, I was very happy with this brew, but I think I would have
    benefited form a...

    Ok all. It sat in primary for 22 days. Bottled on Monday. I'll crack one open in a couple weeks
    and fill you in. Thanks for the comments!!!

    Now I know airlock activity is not the definitive fermentation progress indicator, but mine
    seems to have stopped after about 5 days. So, you folks still think I should leave it in
    primary for another...

    I too would leave it in the primary for 3 weeks rather than transfer. You'll have no risk of
    oxidation and less risk of infection. Curious though... do you do small batches regularly and
    if so, why no...

    Greetings. I just brewed my first BIAB after several extract brews under my belt. Not intending
    to start yet another Primary/Secondary thread, but I hoping someone with experience with this
    yeast stra...
