Thanks guys, I am gonna change my process a bit and see what happens. Gonna get rid of the
vorlauf and mash without a grain bag. Then I'll pour the grains into a grain bag lined in
another kettle, and...

So I've been getting incredibly low efficiency with my BIAB 1-gallon process. I am wondering if
anyone does this similar process and gets at least 75% efficiency? I've consistently been
getting 60% an...

Congrats, you made beer. Seems like you did most things right, but you didn't talk much about

So I was watching TV last night and that Nuwave cooker infomercial came on and it got me
thinking. I've been doing one gallon batches lately and I noticed that you can set the temp to

Yeah you can move it to secondary to dry hop, but anytime you move to secondary you run te risk
of infection, so make sure you have a spray bottle of saniclean or Starsan at hand.
