    That's an interesting read. I have no skills in statistics, but given the small sample size I
    wonder if you could even call those results even?

    Putting that last little bit into something to settle is not a bad idea. I have tried leaving
    it in the kettle for several hours before I transfer. That really helped as it compacted

    I've been doing BIAB for several batches now. I find that with an iodine test it shows

    I'm guessing there are supplies closer, but Brew & Grow in Spring Lake Park (NW suburb of the
    metro) is an hour from St. Cloud. It's only another 20 minutes from there to both Midwest

    If a taste of beer concerns you, the affects of loud noises, flashing lights, television, and
