    As mentioned your ratio looks perfectly normal for a full volume mash. The biggest potential
    issue with thin mashes is probably pH. I don't know how you're handling your water but sounds
    like your bat...

    Don't let the false bottom or lack of hoist stop you. No need for a false bottom if you don't
    fire while the bag is in there. Wrap some insulation around the kettle.And a lot of us don't
    really have a...

    Nothing lucky about it. That's a typical water/grain ratio for full volume BIAB. Why don't you
    just put your bag in your kettle instead of using two vessels?For now it's only because I had
    the cooler,...

    Well......I've done two batches since the above screw up. This last batch went well. I did a
    full boil volume mash with 11lbs of grain to 7 gallons water. I know you're all laughing but it
    makes good ...

    It's not ideal. Much better would have been to pour that off into sanitized mason jars, and
    then use the proper amount (about 1/2 pint usually) in the new beer. I store mason jars of
    yeast in the frid...

    It occurs to me that I may not have fully understood your question. If by old, you mean a cake
    that has had the beer racked off it and it has sat. I have pitched up to a week later on one. I
    always le...

    Yes you can; I have done it several times (preferred it that way, in fact). The recipe does not
    even need to be the same. I mostly make pale ale and IPA and will frequently make a pale ale
    and then, a...

    Well its been covered for 3 weeks. Im sure there's a good head of CO2 on it. Should I throw a
    tablespoon of DME in to see?

    Can I throw a new batch of wort in my carboy on top my last cake of the same recipe?

    So, I'm here, indulging In this absolutely fantastic creation, this was all grain #2 with
    simcoe/amarillo. No dry hop , pitched the trub in, used irish moss, and no chill, never been
    happier! Here is ...
