I'd say that the absolute cheapest way is to go BIAB. You can get a bag for right around $10. If you already have a bottling bucket, you can buy another bucket, drill a bunch of holes in the bottom,...

You should be just fine with a 30 qt for partial mash. You just need to buy a bag for the grains. The recipe as you have it now will work just fine. As you progress, start using more grain and less...

What size kettle do you have? I wasn't suggesting all grain; I merely meant that you should incorporate less extract and more grain. You're right partial mash is a great way to bridge the gap between...

Right on. I suppose I may have misinterpreted something that I've previously read on HBT. Unmalted wheat, however, has a diastatic power of zero, correct?

Three pounds of extract in a 5 gallon batch will give you a specific gravity of 1.025. That's not very high.

Additionally, I don't think you can mash the wheat by itself. You would have to mash...

Are you doing BIAB? My advice would be to use as much grain as you can easily fit in your pot and make up the rest of the gravity with extract. Also, I would go with a few specialty grains in...

I'm in the same situation as you, OP. Here's what I do:

For 2.5 gallon batches, I do full boil. Aim for about 3.5 gallons at the start of the boil. This is pretty straight forward.

For 5 gallon...

That's a good idea. It could be a seasonal kind of thing. However, if it varies frequently, I'd much rather not play Russian roulette with 5 gallon batches of beer. I'd like my water chemistry to be...

If it ain't broke... I think I'll probably just leave it alone for know and go at it in depth if it becomes a problem (or if I've perfected everything else :p).

I'm currently fermenting the NB Caribou Slobber kit with the Windsor. It seems to be hanging around 1.020. I was a little concerned so I did a bit of looking around.
