I do BIAB for my smaller, 1 gallon batches, and the "squeezing the grain bag" part has so far

Thanks very much for the advice.No, I'm a moron and didn't take an OG reading (d'oh -lesson

Forgot to mention I had to substitute 3 pounds of German Pale Malt (3L) for American 2 Row

Posted in thread: 1st AG -- when to dry hop? on 08-22-2015 at 08:41 PM
