    Going to hit BIAB batch #100 within the next couple of months (#97 is currently in primary).
    I've brewed with friends and my brother on alternate systems. In fact, my brother just setup a
    sweet HERMS ...

    Base malt, specialty grains it doesn't matter to me, I squeeze them both like they owe me
    money. -deicide+1000 LOL - that made me burst out laughing :DI, too, am an unabashed squeezer

    +1 on a good thermometer, and I also recommend the thermapen.NOTE: You don't need rice hulls if
    you are BIAB mashing - they are used to prevent a stuck mash in a mash tun, and serve no
    purpose in BIAB...

    It's tougher to do step mashes via BIAB, but I never do them, so I stick with the system that
    cost me nothing to build and costs nothing to keep doing.Confused on this. I find step mashes
    extremely ea...

    I generally do one of three things, depending on the beer (how much hops I used), whether or
    not I am going to repitch the yeast cake, and how lazy I feel: 1) Whirlpool and take everything
    but the hop...

    You can go finer than that with BIAB - to the point where you get a fair amount of "flour" in
    there. This will also increase your efficiency a bit (85-88% or so without sparge, a little
    more with spar...

    I would brew it as is and try a glass with a very small amount of vanilla flavor to see whether
    they play well together+1Another option for trying out the vanilla is to bottle a single bottle
    with som...

    I'm having a hard time with the price as well. I've already purchased IBM1 twice - once on the
    iPod/iPhone and another on the iPad (since IBM1 is not universal). Now, another $18 to get a
    few new feat...

    Resurrecting...I hate Calypso. I've tried to like it, but it tastes like bitter granny smith
    apple skins to me. Maybe good in a mix with others, but just not good by itself. I have almost
    two pounds o...

    I'm going to be using this for the first time this weekend - made a 1.4L starter, going to make
    a 1.054 oatmeal stout (split batch with an English strain) with it to step it up to make an
    all-malt BDS...
