When You Don't RDWHAHB

I started doing BIAB as the intermediate step to all grain and never stopped as well. It makes AG brewing in cramped apartments possible. But even if I had more space I would probably stay BIAB...

Way better than I expected! I used a bottle in a pinch when I ran out of stock. Was the closest thing to chicken stock I had on hand. I use at least a half a bottle every time I make it now. Haven't...

May seem like an obvious thing but what was your OG and estimated FG? If you're making really big beers it could just be a natural by-product of high gravity brewing.

I have 4ish gallons of low abv (3.2ish) belgian golden ready to go. Should the worst happen I'll feel like a 17th century farmer and buzz out the hurricane with my mildly dehydrating 'potable water'.

Thanks for the quick replies everyone.

Requested a water report from my city. Plan for now is to look for a place that sells RO water by the gallon.

To be fair, where I live PBR is still 3.50 for a 6-pack of 16oz cans. Ounce for ounce it's cheaper than Icehouse and Milwaukee's Best and infinitely better.
