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!
