    So if I only did 1.5 qt/lb, I don't know that would be enough given grain absorption?

    I just hope I can make the entire 5 gallons with the 8 gallon pot. I usually mash with 1.5
    lbs/qt not sure if that will work for BIAB?

    I read I needed a 15 gallon pot to do this, which is my concern. I definitely will need to read
    about sparring techniques though as I have no clue what the most efficient sparse technique is
    for BIAB.

    I am itching to brew as its been a few months and my mash tun is I. Storage while I move. I
    want to still make an all grain batch and am wondering if an 8 gallon kettle is large enough to
    attempt a BI...

    I have used the 7 gallon Cronical from Ss Brewtech and think it's awesome. Made an amber ale
    and now I am finishing up my cider. This thing is great because it has the thermowell which
    really helps me...

    Thanks for all the advice, I'll try making a finer crush and go from there.

    I have my rollers set pretty close to each other, to get a fine crush. I assume it's pretty
    good based on the setting? I mash for 75 minutes just to be sure I get a good conversion. I
    used a cooler wi...

    I used Poland springs one time and it was really bad efficiency too. Local hbs guy said to add
    acid malt but I didn't want to add any off flavor malts

    I have made several AG batches and have a good crush so I know he crush is not an issue. I also
    hold water temp to a degree, so I know temp is not an issue. I also fly soar he at a slow rate,
    so I hav...

  • Posted in thread: Brewers Beat Cider Extract Kit on 11-26-2015 at 12:20 AM
    Did it have to age as long as pressed cider. I made 2.5 gallons of fresh cider and it was good
    but sour for the first 5 weeks, then it was well balanced but almost gone. Wondering if the
    kits need as ...
