    I haven't had time to try a brew yet, but this morning I did post a thread on a SMASH recipe to
    try for my first biab (thread:First time BIAB, SMASH - Check my recipe before I give it a
    shot).I'll rep...

    Thanks for the suggestions. Yeah, due to my kettle size I'm only trying for a three gallon
    batch. I wasn't really sure on my water to grain ratio. If I have the assumption that I can
    boil 5 gallons, h...

    Hi everyone,I'm finally getting around to trying my first BIAB, and formulating a recipe (read:
    not brewing an extract kit). I've been struggling to figure out grist ratios, IBUs, and what
    software to...

    Thanks for this idea. I think I'll try this if it looks like I don't have any other options.
    Someone else had a similar issue and was able to figure it out, which is why I posted the link
    to his threa...

    It's natural gas. Last night I "boiled" just one gallon in my new 8 gallon aluminum pot, with
    the lid on and then partially on. I actually used 3 burners for a while, and it only got up to
    210. Grante...

    Ok, thanks! And BTW, I was a person you emailed this morning about shipping my bag out today.
    Looking forward to doing my first BIAB!Yes it is fine to leave the lid on as you approach boil.
    Boiling pa...

    Thanks everyone for your helpful advice. I have a follow-up question — is it ok to have
    the lid on the boil kettle while bringing it up to boil, and then remove it to be uncovered (or
    partially ...

    I looked at doing that, but don't think I can. If I have the "big" burner on full blast, the
    kettle will cover less than half of the smaller back burner. Flames going up the side of the
    kettle seems l...

    Well I feel like an idiot, thinking that my gas stove was more capable than it really was. I
    guess I might be limited to 3G batches. Not sure I really needed to get this 8G kettle when I
    had a perfect...

    It makes me curious as to why so many people said I should get a ten gallon pot for stovetop
    biab. I only got an 8 gallon because of size constraints. Otherwise, I definitely would have
    got a 10 gallo...
