    Whether, beer is made in waders or in a toilet tank, as long as it is fun and the brewer likes
    how it tastes, who cares how it is brewed?Ha ha ha! Toilet tank brew! If done properly, that
    may just wor...

    I've done extract an PM brews before but have been interested in BIAB for a while and finally
    brewed one last week. Being my first AG batch, my mash temps were way off (high) and the

    I just brewed my first BIAB brew last week. I made several extract and partial mash brews
    before, but this was the first all grain. Anyway, I was WAY OFF on my mash temp. Rather than

    go for the reboil with DME. Mainly because this is a small batch and it is an Irish Stout. I'm

    missing my OG by quite a bit. Target is 1.047 and I only got to 1.032! The wort is cooled and
    is still in my...

    Ok. So I just brewed my first BIAB. I made a 1.5 gallon Irish Stout recipe that I found on
    beertools.com and scaled down. Generally, I really like this method and I'll definitely be
    brewing more BIAB ...

    I going to brew my first BIAB and first small batch (1.5 gallons) on Friday - a dry stout! I've
