Like I said, just kegged up a batch and it isn't conditioned by any means so ill let you know
what I think when it's ready. My first impression wasn't BO-like at all, just like a citrusy
and white win...

Did a single hop PA with NS a couple weeks ago and it's conditioning in the keg. Had about a
gallon of leftover beer in the fermenter so I filled up a jug and am drinking it as I
type...this hop is to...

Dough balls in full-volume BIAB are rarely a problem unless the grain bill is huge. The reason
is because the water/grain ratio is so thin that there is always enough water to help break up
the bits. ...

I had the same problem when I was testing out a recipe for a beer to be served at my
wedding...turned out my mashing thermometer was 10 degrees too high between 140-160 and since
the recipe called for...

The great thing about a full-volume BIAB is that the water/grain ratio is so thin that even if
you don't sparge there is enough water in the kettle to shake those sugars off efficiently
during the mas...

All of these suggestions are good and will work, but in my opinion, go for a 10-15 gallon pot
and do full volume BIAB. In an apartment setting space and "cleaning space" is paramount: You
don't have t...

I too have been having problems with low FG since moving to all grain. The last two batches
were nearly the same and both ended at 1.002 with nice flavor but zero body...I've since
excluded all simple...

Totally! I usually don't fuss too much about it, but as this beer is for my wedding I got a bit
concerned. No worries though, there's still time to brew up a couple more batches before June
if these a...

Thanks again for the feedback! All great suggestions. Interesting about the software
calculations...figured something may not have been accounted for in projected FG. Gotta kick
the two kegs in the ke...

The hydrometer readings were both taken at ~68 degrees after chilling and before kegging. Mash
temps were between 150-153 using a thermometer that I've used before that measures boiling
water at 212, ...
