Default BIAB party-gyle

So I've read quite a few threads on this idea going back to 2008.. I'm very interested in trying it. I'm wondering how many of you have actually done it successfully??

One thing that is confusing me in all of the threads I have read...

Everyone talks about making a high gravity beer first (say 1.080 or so) and then a low to medium gravity beer second (say 1.030 to 1.040).. Are these numbers pre or post boil readings??

Talking about the OG of the wort after the boil.

Ok, that's what I thought.. Thanks! I might be biting off more than I can chew since I've only done 2 batches via BIAB. I find that jumping in head first teaches me a lot and I'm able to make quick progress with this hobby. So far no major mistakes or disappointments. I'm going to make both party-gyle batches pretty small for this first attempt, just in case I flub it all up!

I did a BIAB Parti-Gyle Sour Mash Biere De Garde (yes that's a lot of descriptors) and the mashing process seemed to go swimmingly enough, though I'm still waiting on the final results (bugs take a while). But don't see anything wrong with a parti-gyle biab, especially if you're not sparging (which you probably aren't with biab). It couldn't hurt to do the traditional topping of the mashing with a little bit of fresh malt though to increase the gravity if that's what you're worried about.

If it's a question about the viability of Parti-gyle style in general, just remember that Fullers produces 3 separate beers from each batch, and they've been doing just fine for quite a while now.

How much malt would you add to the second batch with an original grain bill of 12lbs? And I'm guessing your first batch is a no sparge mash at about 154F and the second batch is done like a "batch sparge" at 170ish??

i've done it a bunch, it works well. Kai has a spreadsheet here if you want to simulate it to figure out your volumes: Batch Sparge and Party Gyle Simulator - German brewing and more

Awesome! Thank you! I was having a hard time figuring out the water volume for batch 2 since the grain would already be wet... I can't wait to try it. I just have to order some hops and more airlocks (the 7 I have are in use.. haha)..

I don't think that simulator is designed for BIAB per say, dcp27.. If it is I'm just clueless (which isn't too far fetched..).
