Here's what I do. I posted about it a few months back: think I'm planning to upgrade from that
system with a layer of reflectix on the inside, then the closed cell foam mat, then another
layer of ref...

I'm having trouble reading a clear answer from anybody on this thread. I'll provide an example
that might help us to illustrate our points. I'm making a hoppy american red (NB's West Coast

Going to buy a new keg at lhbs today, then I'll take an fg before putting it away. I got a
couple of additional days of airlock activity agreed above post, so I'm hoping it'll settle in

Do you have the brewbucket? I know there's a thread on here, but I'm always interested to hear

Thanks for the replies. I'll look more into kegging option and see if I can make it work with
my space limitations. I'm not interested in going to a 3 vessel system. I love BIAB.
