It takes me about 3 hours from when I begin heating up the water until the yeast is pitched and the fermenter is sitting in its spot. Of course I'm only doing 1.5 gal BIAB batches so heating and cooling doesn't take quite so long.

Happy Brewing!

Just finished it. Started at 9am finished at 12:30pm. I do have access to a commercial kitchen brew in so I have lots of space and cleanup is a breeze + the commercial gas stove is a lot better at getting water to temp then what I would use at home...

I just brewed an Irish Red Ale last weekend and I didn't use wheat. I may be wrong, but wheat is not a classic ingredient for a IRA.

Actually my homebrew store doesn't even carry flaked things. But you can find rye, wheat, baley and oats flaked in a couple of stores.

I've been lead to thing that the flaked wheat is added to improve the head on the beer. Oatmeal will do that too but will leave you with hazy beer. If the haze doesn't bother you, the head produced is awesome.

LOL....wow...the guy asks for help on whether or not he can brew without the flaked wheat, and everyone jumps all over him about the 4 hour brew day. C'mon people, this dude ain't no dingleberry...

HAHA...no, I love you all though.

Congrats! A 3.5 hour AG brew day is pretty impressive! I would have to say, it does depend on your brew space. I personally have to lug everything outside, then put it all back when I'm done. I wish I had a designated brew room, where everything could be setup; just heat up your strike water and off you go!
