I know this has been said already, maybe a hundred times, but the OP is a different type of homebrewer. Hell, we're all different types of homebrewers. He calls it "minimalist." I agree with most of you and tend to call it "stupid." But that's because I'm only interested in making the best beer I possibly can.

I'm proposing an experiment. And I hope I'm not the only one who tries this, but I am definitely going through with it.

I'm going to make a self-designed Simcoe Imperial IPA recipe two different ways on my next brew day. (Probably the last week of this month)

The first method: my standard All-grain set-up. 10gal round mash tun with a false bottom, single infusion with mash-out, fly sparge, 90 minute boil with scheduled hop additions, quick cool with my wort chiller, etc etc etc.

The second method: I'll follow the OP's OP to the letter. BIAB, no temp control, no pH measurements, with hop tea and 25 min boil, no chill method, etc etc etc.

I'll bottle the "traditional" using Revvy's method from his famous Bottling post (Thanks a ton for that btw, totally REVVolutionized my bottling days), and I'll bottle the OP's way using a funnel and a sanitized measuring cup.

We'll see what happens. I'm fairly certain the OP's method will reign victorious, and his paradigm shifting views on brewing will forever ALTER my brew days.
I'm intrigued by your post and I look forward to seeing the results from your completely un-biased and highly scientific experiment.

Yep, saw it. Someone actually pm'ed me the post before it was edited. I love when people attack Revvy. Poor bastard tries to help people, and gets dumped on for coming off as a d bag. People take this forum way too seriously sometimes
