Yeah, now that the krausen has fallen you won't likely have a problem with that tube making
contact with your now fermented beer. That said, Psydanny is right about having the tube in
that far. In the...

There won't likely be anything wrong with it at all...While we're on the topic - google Chicha
to learn how it is traditionally made. Keep the boyfriend - he was only trying to help with the

I don't know why you would do a mash out when you are BIAB...It can be argued that you get more

still come out a gr...

Sorry - went back through my earlier posting and realized I spoke of "the boil" when really

Sorry - I used to batch sparge BIAB to increase efficiency. But no sparge this process'
calculations now make sense. You'd end up with around 6.5 gallons with grain absorption, and
would reduce enough...

Are you doing a 5 gallon or 10 gallon brew? Your calculations are correct, but you are using so
much water (at least for a 5 gallon - almost 3.5 quarts per pound) that you will end up with
too much fo...
