  • Like a lot of homebrewers, I started into the brewing world via Mr. Beer. After a year of several (5-6) successful Mr. Beer kits, I got a 5 gallon kit from Austin Homebrew Supply. My first batch was an extract brew with about 2 pounds of specialty grain. rnThe next month, after stumbling across HBT and gathering TONS of information, I did my first all grain batch (2.5 gallons - used my Mr. Beer fermentor :))rnEver since then, it's been non-stop HBT and all grain brewing via BIAB.rnI like BIAB and it suits my brewing needs right now. I might upgrade to a cooler/3 vessel system in the future. Just not right now...

    I am about to bottle my RIS that has been sitting on oak and bourbon for the past six months.
    I've read up on it and am planning on using around 1.5 grams of yeast for 4 gallons. That's

    I would just let it sit. 21 days isn't that big of a deal. Dryhop when you get back.I second
    this. 21 days is usually my minimum primary length anyways.
