Where do you see liquid over 8 gallons in the sight glass? It is right at 6.75

Yeah, it's hard to see (shadow/low contrast of that fragment). But THE bubble (as always) shows the level ;P

Haha, I should have realized that something was up. Now when I count backwards from the 8.0 G marker, the graduations don't start at 0.

To be completely objective, I've brewed all ways - extract, partial mash, all grain using MLT, as well as now BIAB - for about 8 years now. In all that time, I must say the BIAB batches I've made to date have been consistently better than a traditional MLT system, sparging, etc. Way better efficiency & flavor IMO. I'm all about simplicity & BIAB gives you that, along with a better finished product....

I just ordered my bag and am stoked for moving into AG through BIAB. Probably wouldnt be doing it otherwise.

Quick question: I know u can crush finer with BIAB and it helps eff. Does anyone ever get tannin type flavors from over crushing the husks?

I haven't experienced any issues with tannins due to crush. I always double crush at the lhbs.

nope... no tannin flavors from the crush.. and you can squeeze the bag too.. no tannins that way either
