    It's great to see the input flowing. FWIW, I don't use any pumps and the only lift I do,
    besides the grain bag is a cold pot of water to the range top. I sparge with a gallon of 170
    degree water over ...

    I only go the DME route when doing double batches because I haven't been motivated to lift 20
    plus pounds of grain out of my 20 gallon kettle. It's not about an ABV boost as I like to brew
    in the 4-5%...

    You sound like a very busy guy! I won't try to convince you as I am a BIAB brewer. I like the
    simplicity and love the end product of BIAB personally. I brew all grain single batches inside
    on an induc...

    Well the test boil was such a success, and I had pot full of hot water which had cooled, so I
    dropped a bag of grains in.... I brewed a classic special bitter. I did not insulated the pot
    and experime...

    256980Here is a 10 gallon Mega Pot 1.2 sitting on the 36 inch Bosch NIT5665UC. With 6 US
    gallons @ 49F degrees. No lid. Set on Boost, 4400 watts from a dual ring 11 inch burner. It
    seems that boost ti...

    I am going to brew with a 10 gallon mega pot 1.2. I am aiming for a full volume BIAB with about
    5.75 gallons ending volume in the kettle. Stay tuned.

    FWIW, I am cooking mostly with the Cuisinart MCP line, which is Tri ply, and I really like the
    heat distribution on the pots. I find it hard to believe that there is a loss, other than to
    say that the...

    My mistake on the model number, apologies. I have the Bosch NIT5665UC. The 11 inch burner in
    the middle is capable of 4.4 KW, which should make short work of 7 gallons. I replaced a
    cracked Dacor infr...

    Subscribed. I have been motivated to explore induction brewing only this year, I have been at
    it otherwise for about 20... Never mind the details, but I have a Bosch range, NIC5665uc, which
    I love. It...

    It's almost a SMaSH really. Maris otter base and challenger hops. I think you would need about
    a half pound of crystal 60 for five gallons to get closer. I am guessing about 7 lbs of MO
    extract for fi...
