    If you're gonna MIAB in a cooler, you might as well do full BIAB and skip the whole
    transferring of wort from the cooler MT step. Assuming you have a 10 g kettle, of course. When
    you BIAB, you can wra...

    Ideally that's all you do. There can be temperature loss, though. In which case you add boiling
    water or pull off some wort for a decoction boil that you add back in effort to raise your mash
    temp.If ...

    Did you do a mashout to stop conversion? That would denature your enzymes lock in your sugar
    profile....Someone can correct me if I'm wrong but think alpha amylase may still be active in
    the low to mi...

    also, another question...once the mash is done and i drain that into my brew kettle and add
    half the sparge water to my MT, wait 10 minutes then slowly drain it into the brew kettle. At
    this point, am...

    If your recipe doesn't account for the amount of water in the block of ice, you will dilute
    your wort and lower you OG. There are things you can do to account for it, but it's similar to
    adding top of...

    For absolutely zero cost upgrade, do 2.5 gallon extract batches with your Mr. Beer kit.Your LBK
    will work as a fermenter... Your plastic Mr. Beer bottles will work... The Mr Beer extracts are
