First let me say this was my first all-grain and first biab. I used the excel spreadsheet (The Calculator.xls) from the Aussie website www.biabrewer.info.

Using the efficiency of 79% from the spreadsheet, my grain bill remained the same, however I did have the grains run through the mill a second time for a finer crush.

I started with 9-gals of water in my 62-qt bayou classic brewpot and did a 90-min mash as well as a 90-min boil.

I missed my OG a bit (1.047), I think I had more of a boil-off than anticipated (maybe boiled too hard?) and my FG was 1.010.

We bottled last week and I snuck one over the weekend and it tastes great - can't wait until the next one.

p.s. I also incorporated the no-chill method with this batch and loved it!

Do you have the exact link to the calculator. I can't find it on the biagbrewer.info site.

I say it's better to be over your OG than under

This is the link to The Calculator, however you might need to 'register' on the website to access it...

http://biabrewer.info/viewtopic.php?f=25&t=189

From the Home page click on; The Master Guide of BIAB Brewing
from there, click on; The Calculator

I can also send it to you if you pm me your email (HBT doesn't accept .xls extensions for file attachments).

I have brewed this twice and both times the flavor has come out great, however, it has absolutely zero head. Has anyone else experienced a similar issue?

Mine has a VERY nice head to it, with good retention. Mine never cleared though. Was in primary for 3 weeks, then cold crashed, and it still looks like a wit.

Anyone ever make this with strictly only cascade or centennial? What about S-05?

I have never made a 10 gal batch so this will be my first one. How would I go about splitting one packet of yeast to two fermenters?

Actually I have used only cascade with this recipe...not bad. uh, seems like I just brewed this yesterday...this beer does mature quick. Also, about the yeast...It's been soooo long since I've had to buy yeast so if I remember correctly, it will say on the package to use one pack per 5 gallons. Or you could just use a cable-stretcher...those seems to work as yeast splitters too. SORRY, I had to do that.

I've made this with US-05. It is a great yeast for this recipe. As a matter of fact I just may prefer it to the Notty. Also as for the 10 gallons, I just hydrate 2 packs and pitch them into 5 gals each. I brewed 20 gals of this and pitched 4 different yeasts. I am about a week away from sampling them I will update after tasting them.
