Amazing thread. Quick question though. I'll be doing a 5 gallon PM Zombie Dust clone, I'm still very new to brewing and have only done a few extract brews, I generally start off with 3 gallons pre-boil and then top up to 5 gallons in my primary once the wort is chilled etc. The recipe I'm using calls for 2.5 lbs of grain so here's my question.

So with the partial mash....2.5 lb grains @1.25 quarts (water) = 3.125 quarts which is roughly .78 gallons correct? I'm going to be doing a 3 gallon boil and then top it up to 5 gallon post boil. How much wort can I expect that 2.5 lb of grain to absorb?

I just want to make sure that when I add my "first wort" to the my other wort which I'll be steeping with my bag of grains that it ends up around 3 gallons.

Thanks

3 quarts to 1 gallon of water would be fine for the mash. Sparge with 1 gallon at 165-168F. That'd give about 2 gallons of wort. Or sparge with 1.5 gallons to get 2.5G for the boil. That'd allow for a lil boil off.

Yeah, I've now used this method successfully for about 10 batches ... definitely better beers than the extract batches I was doing before, just a more complex flavor overall. Thanks for this awesome thread that originally convinced me I could do it!

Thanks! I used these instructions a couple of weeks ago and I can't wait to taste how the beer turned out. I really appreciate this tutorial.

Thanks for the tutorial! It's refreshing to see clear instructions that aren't unnecessarily pedantic.
BIAB partial mash actually seems like such a sensible compromise, I can't honestly see why I'd want to upgrade to all-grain (at least for a number of years).
