Motley, I'm in the same boat, I don't have a ton of space to keep my brewing supplies so I work
off 2 5 Gallon BKs, a propane burner, and 2 plastic fermenters. I typically do 3.5-4.25 gallon

I do 3 gallon BIAB in my 5 Gallon BKs. It's pretty much the biggest all grain that fits in it

OP, I was in the same boat as you. The only difference is that my wife and daughter both hated

Honestly, I love it. I've put 3 different beers into the 3 bottles I had from my first kit.

to time), I ha...
