Posted in thread: BIAB size question on 10-28-2011 at 06:58 PM
I ran some numbers and here is what I got:If you wanted to brew 5.5 gallons of a 1.070 dubbel,
you would require 385 gravity points. Assuming 70% efficiency (which is about what you would
get with a B...

Sessionable Belgians are some of my favorite beers. Here's what started out as a clone of
Russian River's 'Redemption', but sort of evolved based on what was at my LHBS. Overall, this
beer is good aft...

I agree with above. I've done a few BIAB in a 7.5 gallon pot, and (especially with bigger

Posted in thread: cooling wort question on 10-27-2011 at 07:25 PM
I don't want to carry 50 pounds of boiling wort to my bathtub, so I invested in an immersion
chiller. To help keep the water going through the chiller cool, I fill a bucket with alot of
ice, some salt...

I've never done this at all. I put 5 gallons into my fermenter.Are you keeping all of your
brews in the primary for a month? I would love to get more beer out of the fermenter if this is
