    The rack may come in handy if you need to heat it with the bag in there. Otherwise I would
    leave it off.

    By wheat do you mean american wheat? Slightly citrusy? If so I'd just use a clean neutral ale
    yeast, same one for ipa should work. There are lots of good saison yeasts. I'd rather pitch
    liquid than ha...

    Agreed with texas. I'd keep at least a quarter gallon headspace for pre boil.

    Interesting, I've never heard of a no chill. Wouldn't that mess up the cold break? Something
    about off flavors if it doesn't cool quickly? I've never heard of MaxiBIAB, but after reading
    about it, it ...

    I checked it out. What do I put in for sparging volume?That's dependent on your recipe and
    equipment, for a full volume mash you would put 0. It's only needed if you want to mash
    thicker, and sparge, ...

    Just an update from by brew yesterday. I eliminated the mash-out rest as you advised. My
    brewhouse efficiency dropped from 77 last brew to 72 this time. No other changes were made and
    the grain bill w...

    Here's an explanation on how to use the calculator. talks a bit about calculating the
    boil-off rate too:Didn't know you had an article on here, thanks for the link!

    A question about these calculators that I see online.How do I know how much is going to boil
    off during the boil?This is the calculator that I was looking at: they said, boil off is going
    to vary bas...

    K meta will stabilize it and prevent the yeast from working. Airspace is not ideal, but not
    really a deal breaker. Just make sure the hot wort touches all sides, to pasteurize the air,
    and it's sealed...

    Don't worry about the ibu, unless you're aiming for a high ibu (iipa or something) you won't
    notice.Trub settles out. Temp variation sounds strange, maybe try doughing in a little more
    gradually? Doug...

Wasn't sure where to post this - maybe this will do the trick. New brewer here with a few successful extract batches to my credit. Planning on my first BIAG session this weekend and wanted to thank you for your kick ass calculator! I played around with others out there, but none made as much intuitive sense as the Priceless one has. I am really hoping to use the heck out of it in the coming year as I refine my process.

Once again, sincere thanks for your efforts!
