3.5 hour brewday(including setup, cleanup and putting everything away).. wow!

Just wrapped up a 3 gal batch of honey brown ale utilizing eBIAB with no sparge/no mashout & racking into a no-chill cube. I can't believe how simple and stress-free of a brew session that was!

Guess the we will see in a month how good it turns out

Keep working on tightening up your process. I can do a batch BIAB with sparge and chill in just a little over that.

You did really good though. Isn't it nice to be able to have your brew day done and everything put away in less that the conventional tun user can.

Absolutely! I can definitely see where I can shave some time off here and there as I get a good routine down. It was my first no chill session.. Really enjoyed it

How long do you plan to leave the wort in the no-chill cube?

I did just one no-chill batch but I poured the wort right into the fermenter bucket, put on a sanitized lid and an airlock with just a little water in it so it wouldn't all get sucked into the fermenter. I set the bucket in a 62 degree room and it took about 36 hours to get cool enough to pitch.

This batch I will probably rack to a carboy on Wednesday. If this works out well I might do like the Australians do and brew a bunch of batches and leave them in the cubes until I have room to ferment them.. Weeks later perhaps. I like the idea of flexibility

Buckets are not rated for boiling liquids. I have no idea what actually happens if you do subject them to boiling.

I did my first no-chill a couple weeks ago and used a corny keg as a no chill vessel. It cooled down in about 18 hours.

I checked on the buckets before I used it with boiling wort. The buckets are good for up to 250 degrees F. and I can't get the wort over 212.

I think I may have the market cornered on lazy fast brew days...

I do e-BIAB no chill in the ketttle, ferment in the kettle, then transfer to a keg for secondary / serving. Sometimes, I even cut the mash or boil short to say 40 minutes.

Lately, I have been setting a fan next to the hot kettle to speed cooling, gets down to about a 100 degrees in 6-8 hours, then I sanitize a few frozen 2 litre soda bottles and drop them in the kettle. When cool I aerate, then pitch my yeast slurry in the kettle.. I just keep the lid on the kettle for the active fermentation, then fit a plastic bag over the top of the kettle and tie it snug with a length of string before the kruesen drops. Seems to seal well and the beer is likely still gassing off some CO2, as there is positive pressure, once the bag goes slack, I try and keg it in a few days max.

I like doing no chill in the kettle, I also have been getting some decent hop aroma / flavor adding a hop addition once the wort cools to about 150 degrees.

Haha.. lazy fast brew day... Like it!

I like to think of it as "streamlining" the brew day
