    I wonder how the OP made out?

    I've made variations of it twice, and plan more. Glad yours worked out!

    I try to stay dry during any kind of hopping, but it rained on my brewday. Just to be safe, I
    threw in some fresh picked wet hops.

  • Posted in thread: BIAB with limited pot size on 09-30-2016 at 02:21 PM
    I used to make 5 gallon batches in a 5 gallon pot. The method is similar to extract brewing and
    topping off. I mashed in the pot with a typical grain/water ratio. Remove the bag to a strainer

    You could try "Smart Hopping" tm*People love stuff that says "smart", even when it's stupid.

    Thanks for the tip. I may try it, as I have many C-clamps. My only worry would be damaging the
    beer line over time.

    They all have possibilities. I would certainly watch an episode to see how interesting it is. I
    do feel that #3 is a developing story, one that many homebrewers dream of. And it could keep
    the viewer'...

    I've used them in a few beers for bittering and flavor. I agree with your description of them.
    I wouldn't fear using them in a stout. Let us know what happens.

    I don't use a secondary. I have added candi syrup in primary after the initial ferment. It
    fires right back up. I haven't used molasses.
