Nice idea.. No bag!

I thought about trying something like that but didn't want to buy a false bottom for my test.

I'll check my notes when I'm at home, but I think it was almost 70 overall, something 77 mash efficiency. It's not noticeably different than my plain BIAB beers before this mod.

Sweet... thanks again. It's planted in a pot, so I'll just cut it back when it grows to an un-managable height. At it's current growth rate, that should happen by the middle of next week! :eek:

Great... Thanks.

How far down should I snip them? Do I want to leave some stalk and leaves?

I did search and didn't find the link you posted (it had better prices than what I've been finding, and many of what I've found don't ship to Canada).

This doesn't make sense. Flat rate boxes (medium) are $41 to Canada. And you should only have about $20 or so in fees when you get it.

I could see $60 in extra fees if it was UPS, however.
