Agreed. I try to limit the amount of crud that goes into primary, but it really does NOT

demonstrate that fact:...

That looks like the Homebrew Academy Citra Pale Ale . It's a great brew that I used as a
starting point - with slight modifications it's my standard summertime brew. Matter of fact,
I'm mashing right ...

You're right, that's weird. An immersion chiller is significantly less efficient than a plate
or counterflow chiller. Not sure what you mean by " the majority of your wort is just below

suspect it will ...

thinning out the beer with a quantity of Vodka.I think it was something like 47 ml into 14L of
beer... there ...

I made this recipe & tapped the keg a few weeks ago - great color but I thought it was a little
malty / heavy. Color came out great with 3 oz of RB.I finished at 4.3% ABV and, after a week of

So I tried for the first time an AG Irish Red recipe - I picked one of the simpler ones on the
forum here ( ), I used 3 oz of roasted barley, and the color came out great.I mashed at 154,
my OG was ...

Yes, this is the ENTIRE reason I'm switching to BIAB and have purchased the Brew Boss. I
haven't brewed in about a year because I got so tired of 5.5-6 hr brew days. I'm really, really
hoping my brew ...
