Alright so I just finished up a 10 gallon batch of a Belgian Blonde with Lavender. I was doing this solo today so im sure it could be more detailed with pictures, but I did that best I could!

Heres a picture of the rig:



1. Fill kettle with 14 gallons of filtered water.



2. Heres the current Temp of water (red #'s) from PID, going to be brought up to 160 degrees.



3. While waiting for that, I went ahead and got the handy basket that was included with the kettle prepped by lining it with my bag.



4. Poured in the Grains



5. Kettle is at temp now, dunking the basket in the kettle and beginning the mash





6. Temp has dropped down right where I want it and now let it mash for 90min!



7. Once done I left the basket and let all the wort drip down in to the kettle, once it starts slowing down i put the basket on top of a pot on the ground and squeeze the excess liquid out to dump back into the kettle.



8. Turn up the temp on the PID and begin boiling for 90min(lots of pilsner malt)



(heres an extra picture of the whole rig during the boil with my ingredients laid out ready to be added.)



9. Once the boil is done I put my immersion chiller in and cool down to 75 degrees.



(temp dropping)



10. Ready to pour in the fermenters!

Great setup! When I convert to electric I plan on having a pump to recirculate during the mash.

Great looking setup, I'm looking to do something similar.

Question, aren't you worried about tannins in step 7? I was taught that if you squeeze the grains you would extract tannins, but I could have been mislead.

Tannins aren't an issue when squeezing the bag.. It's a misunderstanding. Temperature is more of an issue, if you go over 80C or thereabouts.
