    I'm doing this tonight, but I will be boiling in the morning. During my research I found that
    others have done what you are asking successfully. Go for it and report back your results. If
    you can, con...

    I use a 20' chiller and can get a 5 gallon batch cooled in 15-20 minutes.

    I find that connecting the TAD to a paintball tank and regulator makes it easier for me to
    force carbonate. Here is a good calculator:

  • Posted in thread: BIAB Kettle Size on 06-08-2012 at 07:13 PM
    I've read recommendations for BIAB that one should double the size of the pot based on your
    final volume (e.g. 20 gallon pot for 10 gallons of beer). I never thought I would do 10 gallon
