I usually make my own recipes or use recipes from the HBT recipe database.

Thanks for the post! Makes my life easier. I also found it interesting about 45-60min mash vs the 8+ hour mash. The first time I tried it, I left it for 90 minutes. Instead of hitting 1.067, I hit 1.064. Not too bad.

This is a great thread!

Ditto! If you can find grain by the sack, your cost will drop substantially IME, then make recipes, don't be afraid to make substitutions FWIW! all good!

I tried this method once and it was not great. I held the voile with binder clips, but the portion hanging over got scorched from the heat coming up the side of the pot. I also forgot to use my cake rack in the bottom and got a scorch on the bottom of the pot. So it ended up being a one time use. I eventually found laundry bags at Bed, Bath, and Beyond that have a tight mesh and drawstring. They've worked fantastically for my 42 qt pot.

How often do you stir your grains while waiting for conversion? I'm thinking of every 15 min for a 60 min mash, then bring temp up to 168 mash out while stirring some more. Maybe it's not really needed?

I'm getting excited for my first batch in my new s/s modified BIAB that should be completed soon.

I stir my grains when I add them to my strike water to make sure there aren't any lumps. When I'm satisfied, I put the lid on my kettle and then cover the kettle with a sleeping bag and let it go for the entire 60 minutes. That way I'm not letting any heat out and I can maintain my mash temps better.

Note: I usually don't have to add heat once my sleeping bag is covering my kettle so I don't have to worry about scorching my grains. I also have a canning basket I place upside down at the bottom of my kettle so this too will help prevent scorching if I happen to have to add heat...
