Clem, this confuses me, it shouldn't be much harder than tying your shoes???

...Just got a bag from Jeff in the mail today and am looking forward to using it. Man, it's a nice bag. Stitching is flawless and plentiful, IMHO, and it's far nicer than I expected. I hope to report back on it after use number 20! ...or 30

Great walkthrough! I'm doing my first all grain on my stove top with 2.5 gallons. I have to modify a bit but this helped me understand the processes.

What is your equipment? I see the blickman, but what size etc? Did you find a deal for it somewhere?

Hi y'all. I'm about to do my first BIAB in a couple of weeks. I've got a 15 gallon kettle and all my equipment. I didn't ready through all the pages but here are my questions. As far as recipes go, do I just pick up an all grain recipe kit or do I need specific BIAB recipe kit? Also from the posts I did read it looks like I just have to double mill the grains for certain beers. But how do I figure out which recipes need to have the grains double milled? Thanks in advanced for the help.

Just about any recipe can be done BIAB style, recipes don't change with brewing method.

BIAB allows you to use a fine crush, just be sure that all the grain pieces are well fractured, and NO, almost no whole kernels of grain are present. This will dictate the need for a double crush.
You don't want a coarse crush with whole grains remaining.

I'm still using my 10 gallon Blingman kettle but any type of kettle will work. If you plan to brew high gravity beers I'd recommend at least 15 gallon kettle. Soon I'll be updating my brewery to use either a larger boil kettle or perhaps multiple mash kettles since I brew a good amount of high gravity.

If you mainly brew 5 gallon batches at OG ~1.070 or less then you should be fine with a 10 gallon kettle.
