Wow I never thought of that. Of course. Decoction brewers purposely boil thick mashes with no issues. Mind totally at ease. Thanks.

If all that fine stuff filters out, how do you keep it from clogging your filter? I pour my wort into the fermenter through a paint strainer bag, but it does clog.

oh it clogs. i have to stop pouring a few times during the filtering process, use a spoon to suspend/push aside the solids, dump them out, and start pouring again. i typically have to stop 5-7 times during a 5-gal batch.

like i said, it's a slight pain but i don't really mind. i've also said that this is probably an example of me going overboard. the stuff will settle out, and i doubt that the pH of my wort is so far off that tannin extraction is a threat.

Hey guys, I was using paint strainer bags as my BIAB and was getting alot of this trub, but now I made my own bags out of this very fine voile and I have seen a drastic reduction in the bits of junk at the bottom of my kettle now. I am still getting 75-80% efficiency too. Just kegged a 6% Pale Ale I made last month.
