I don't know if it'll fit or not, but you can try the "can I mash it?" calculator on
rackers.org to see how much volume it will take up. You need at least 1 quart of water per
pound of grain to ensure...

If you have a way to mash the oats, and then maybe steep the other grains, and then combine
that into the kettle, then I think it could work. I've never done a true BIAB mash, but you may
be able to g...

The beer will carb slower at higher temperatures at a constant pressure.The CO2 absorption rate
is proportional to the difference between headspace pressure and the equilibrium pressure at
the beer te...

I'll admit I didn't read the whole thread, but tried a search and came up short. How does
temperature effect the co2 burst? For example, if my beer goes into my kegs from the carboy in
the basement at...

Did you crush the wheat? If not, you probably are getting zero gravity points from it. Wheat
has a potential of 1.045 per pound per gallon or wort. But it needs to be crushed to release
the starches a...

I am not sure how much the wheat would raise the gravity, but I believe I have 1.115 from sugar
alone, according to this link: I didn't account for the wheat, I would have PA of 15.6 - 9.5 =

I have started a batch of Jack Keller's Carrot Whiskey. I am curious if I have a stuck ferment,

the rest ...

A lot of great opinions here everyone, I appreciate the input. I'll have to look into that 15
minute ale. I did an all grain BIAB batch today, and it was a lot more painless than I
remember. It has be...

Extract is for time, All Grain is for cost. If you can spare an extra hour All Grain is the way
to goEven if you aren't buying grain in bulk? 2.10 per lb of Maris Otter seems like its still

My guess would be the lhbs guy has never brewed BIAB before. IME most folks who have bad things
to say about it have not actually tried it. In his defense, if you were asking strictly about
time then ...
