it works for whatever method you mash, as long as you batch sparge. if there's target OG/batch sizes you're going for I can help you get there

That's my problem! I do "no sparge BIAB".. I'll have to wrap my head around the idea of doing it with a sparge, which I've never done. I think that's why that simulator looks like it's written in French to me..

Your sparge would be dunking your bag in 168ish degree water to get your second batch (second runnings). It makes it easier to have two kettles and two burners.

without a sparge or small batch sizes, you'd need a massive mash tun to do a no sparge BIAB partigyle. even at both half batches, that'd mean a minimum of 7gals in the mash tun + grains.

I have an 11 gallon kettle and a 7.5 gallon one too. I was planning on doing a 4 gallon batch for the first and ??? for the second.. I'm thinking the second batch would be maybe 2 to 2.5 gallons or so.. With 8 gallons of water in my big kettle I can fit about 13lbs of grain (more or less), so I figure if I scale down to a 4 gallon batch I would start with around 6.75 gallons of water and a few more lbs of grain to get the higher OG on batch one.. Then use my 7.5 gallon kettle to do the batch sparge (2nd batch) in. Now I'm wondering how the hell I'm going to cool two batches at the same time with one IC.. I'll try to offset the boil of each batch by 20 mins I suppose..

ok, well I just threw this together quick, so you'll hafta check it, but if you wanted 4gals of 80ish and 2.5gals of 40ish, you'd start with about 16lbs in 6.5 gals. those first runnings would be your big beer, then you;d batch sparge with around 3.75 gals for your small batch. you can then cap either with some specialty grains while you heat them up.

chilling both with one IC isn't too bad, I usually just boil the big beer a lil longer. since the small one will heat and cool quicker, you dont need to offset too much

Did you make the BIAB party-gyle? If so how did it go? What were the numbers on the small batch? Thanks!

Yes I'd like to know, too. Would be nice to make a lighter style of the beer that my wife may enjoy more than me, for the same price of the initial beer!

Sorry to say I haven't done it yet. I've been doing all kinds of DIY stuff since I posted this thread, and now I have a sanke keg mash tun. I'm still trying to dial in my process with it. I no longer do BIAB, but I do intend on trying the partygyle still. I'm hoping to get some bulk grains soon...
