    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
    gallon pot?

    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
    what I thought ha...

    This question was discussed much earlier in the thread.IIRC, the consensus was: yes, you CAN do
    5 gallon batches in the 10 gallon system, you just need to keep a closer eye on the level in
    the bottom ...

    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
    with disso...

    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
    mark.I've b...
