Posted in thread: What's mash-out in BIAB and what is it for? Do we need it at all? on 10-05-2013 at 05:46 PM
Quarts to pounds mash ratio isn't all that applicable to BIAB. Rather most like to think in
total water needed.Example...Total water = finished batch + boil off + grain absorption +
losses to trubYou ...

When I used to BIAB I would go for the DME and table sugar when I had to brew something really
big. You can only get so much grain in the bag!This is what I've typically done to. I will go
to 10 lbs o...

If you guys don't mash out what is your quart to pounds of grain ratio? Is it higher or do you
just fill to 6.5 gallons after the mash?

maybe somehow the co2 stayed disolved the the solution. poke it, see if it explodes.well
technically I poked it when I pulled beer to test the gravity. Really confused, the only time I

Update, so when I got home I did a hydrometer reading and it came in around 1.002. I have
absolutely no idea how that happened. I did not ever seen any Krausen and I never saw air
coming out of the ai...

Perfect. Thanks everyone. I will check the gravity tonight and if there is little to no change
I will go ahead and pitch the extra packet.

That is really odd, confirm with a gravity reading but it sounds like maybe you killed the
us-05 with excessive heat in the wort you put on top of the cake? I have always had my second
batch take off ...

This is the second time I have racked onto a yeast cake. I typically do this to get faster

You may not be seeing the full rate of gas loss using a bubble test on a connected QD, so it's
hard to answer your question with any confidence.If your beer is carbed up - and you don't have

Bad o-ring around the post. Replace it - and when you do, pick up some keg lube and use it on
every o-ring and gasket on your dispensing system, from keg to faucet...Cheers!Makes sense and
