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 ...

This just came to me - as a volume displacer: a kettlebell! The handle will make it easier to
'hook' out before your boil!

How about a sealed displacement vessel? Pay a friend (in beer, natch) to weld closed a 1 or 2

Is there something that could be made out of stainless to displace the water. How about a
smaller stainless pot that fits nicely inside and not touch the boil coil, in the MT which
could be removed be...

Well, carbonic acid dissociates into bicarbonate and hydrogen ions. AFAIK, there's no such
thing as "dissolved CO2" since it doesn't ionize in solution. I could be wrong, but this is

Raenon,Pretty good explanation, but I might pick just one nit: CO2 can be dissolved in solution
WITHOUT forming carbonic acid. Since carbonic acid is a weak acid it exists in an equilibrium

It has formed pressure. That's step one in the carbonation game. Step two is waiting for that
pressure to be absorbed into the liquid. That takes a couple weeks. I bet if you open those
bottles now, y...

Ah, makes perfect sense - thanks Yooper!Since this is my first lager I'll stick to the recipe
and keep the boil at 90 min....

I always thought boiling was for hop isomerization. Is there some other magic to it?I'm doing a
recipe now that calls for a 90 min boil but the first hop addition isn't until the 60 minute
