I'm more than happy to leave it alone next time while I go out and do something useful for an hour or so instead - the dog's always happy for another walk and there's a very nice real ale pub near here with a constantly changing selection of guest beers, I'd just about have enough time for a quick p...

Hi BBH I might try that next time, I've got enough ingredients to do an identical brew again so it'll be interesting to see the difference between stirring with more heat loss and not stirring to maintain the temperature more effectively. The stirring was more because I thought this was essential ra...
Hi guys. Thanks for all the feedback and advice. One thing I'd like to ask you all is how much do you stir during the mash? I'm guessing this is when most of the heat loss happens so I don't want to make this worse than it needs to be. I did four stirs at 10, 20, 40 and 65 minutes, is this about rig...
Hi all I've just finished my first BIAB, woohoo! The wife's not as delighted as me so I thought I'd share it with you lot :thumbs: I did a Mini-BIAB following NRB's All-Amarillo APA but slightly higher amounts of grain - 2kg MO, 400g Munich and 200g CaraAmber. It all went pretty well for a first go....
PistolPatch, As I write (type) it is -17 ºF = -27.22 ºC locally. 30 minuets from here it is -23 ºF = -30.55 ºC It is 7:31 AM Yes it is cold. But it is nice for chilling your beer? The windchill is the real problem. -17F with any kind of wind will drop the temperature to -45F (to exposed skin) that ...
Hi I'm Ian from Yorkshire, UK. I've been brewing kits for about 8 months and fancy stepping up to AG without the expense. I found out about BIAB from JBK and got directed here. Looks like a great forum and I can't wait to get started, I'll be giving the Maxi-BIAB technique a go first to get the hang...
Hi the registration was no problem, took a while but it was useful to read the information and I understand why you've decided to go about it this way - encouraging people to be active on a forum is a good idea. I don't have any criticisms of the process or any ideas for improving it - I think it's ...
Hi everyone My name's Ian, I'm from Yorkshire, England. I started brewing beer this year and I've done a dozen or so kits to get a feel for it. I started playing around with hop additions to the kits and was about to start extract brewing with a view to stepping it up to all grain when I got all the...
