Does how hard I'm boiling attribute to the boil-off rate? I ask because I have done calculations for boil-off and I get widely varying results. I think I have a hard time remembering how strong I let...

5.5 gallons, how much into fermenter?

I've done a bunch of BIAB brews now. One thing I just started doing, however, is adding hops to a sack during the boil as opposed to just tossing them in the kettle.

The brew I did this weekend...

Oh no. This discussion again. I've had such efficiency issues with BIAB. On Saturday I brewed and treated my water pH for the first time. Post-Mash efficiency was 82% and SG efficiency was 72%. I...

Any negatives to doing this? You can get same efficiencies from the grain if the water to grain ratio is lower during the mash?

I've had a problem with what the OP mentioned, but at a better efficiency.

The last two batches my pre-boil wort was in the 80%'s and then the OG ends up being significantly lower.

Thanks for the help. Ever since I switched to AG my beers have been really, just bland. I'd say the flavor is "flat" (obviously not talking carbonation). This strongly leads me to believe I have a...

What might be the cause of this cloudiness?

Since I switched to AG brewing about 10 batches ago (BIAB) I have had a hard time with cloudiness in my higher OG (1.050+) beers. I keg all my beers.

The steps I take to minimize cloudiness are:...

Is there a reason to cold crash when kegging?

As I understand it, you cold crash to help settle the yeast and clarify the beer. I have an IPA that's currently fermenting and have been thinking about cold crashing as all my IPAs always end up...

Built this on Saturday. Was using it as a regular bottle beer fridge. So I lost one type of fridge and gained a kegerator. Pretty fair trade off if you ask me!

Could I do something like ALWAYS using 7.5 gallons and if I come up a little short pre-boil could I add a little more water? Would this mess anything up?
