Hey there! I'm from Southern Ontario, Canada. I have been extract brewing for about a year now, and I'm now looking to try some all-grain. I'm really interested in Mini-BIAB batches since I'm working with limited space. From what I've read, this site appears to be a great resource! Looking forward to making better beer!

Hi guys Steve here ,
I'm from little ol NZ , I've just started brewing about to tackle my first all grain ( it's my forth brew ) and it's going to be a biab .
I've chosen to do a smash ( why do folks type it SMaSH ) . I've got 5.5 kg of Maris otter malt and citra for the hops , and I can't wait .
Wow I must say there is some knowledge here on this site I may just wait till next Sunday to brew as I've got to read as much as I can . ( truth be known , I've got a sneaky little porter to bottle this weekend )
If there are any other kiwis on this site in the Auckland area I'd like to catch up as I don't know any other brewers .
Cheers
Steve

Cidma, Barefootbrewer,

Welcome to the forum. Lots of information to digest. Beer aids good digestion. SMaSH is just typed that way just to emphasize ( Single Malt - Single Hops. ) The (a) "and" in is only there to make it a "cool" brewing word!! We brewers are a strange lot! We get "Smashed a lot! :lol:

Hello all! I am from central Indiana, USA. My husband and I recently completed two 5 gallon extract kits but plan to move to small batch, stovetop, BIAB method. We just ordered ingredients for four 1-3 gallon batches that we plan to brew over the next 4-6 weeks. We have been doing a good deal of reading on the method, but have found some confusing information so decided to turn to a source dedicated to BIAB. I've browsed your site as a guest and am thrilled at the amount of content and clarity. Thank you for providing this resource!

Hello from Maine. I mashed in earlier tonight on my first BIAB, it's a 2-row/Cascade SMaSH. Hit my mash temp and held it pretty well (aiming for 152, had to use a little extra heat during the mash as it's about 14F outside where I'm brewing), now enjoying the aroma of the Cascades and making my first post on BIABrewer. Found out about this site from the other homebrew site I frequent, homebrewtalk.com

Post #4637 made 5 years ago
Hi from the heart of the Adirondack mountains. I've been brewing from kits and have done one brew in a bag and am changing over to BIAB because I want to be able to simplify my ingredients to use mostly organic malt that I can purchase bulk and I believe it's a more natural and clean method because I can control where my malt comes from. Thanks for having me.

Hi everyone! A relatively new brewer here from the Dallas area. I have 6 extract batches under my belt, and I'm looking to move to all grain next. I've been looking into the BIAB method, to avoid having to spend the money to buy everything for a seperate mash tun. I did recently upgrade to a 16-gallon brew kettle, and am looking forward to brewing in it! I found this site through the guys over at HomeBrewTalk.

Welcome to our world. "Hmm.....Sounds like a song title is in there somewhere?" Anyway, BIAB is the ultimate brewing style. Economical in money, storage space, learning time and ease of brewing. The benefits of brewing great beer with BIAB are astounding! Prepare to be amazed!!!

G'Mornin (or afternoon/evening depending on your location) to all!

SudsEvangelist here looking forward to getting involved in the BIABrewer forums. I'm from Rochester, NY, USA and currently brew mostly mini mash / extract batches but am looking to getting plugged (pun intended) into the all grain scene via the vehicle known as Electric BIAB! When not obsessively reading and researching the art of brewing, I spend my time studying in pursuit of my degree in Religion and Philosophy at Roberts Wesleyan College.

Regards,

SudsEvangelist,

Good to have you here! I think we've all done some philosophizing over beer. Seriously, though, it is great to hear that you are studying things important to humanity and it is great that you are moving up to AG. You should get a lot of help here. Post when your are ready to do your first BIAB and let us know how it is going.

Post #4644 made 5 years ago
Hey guys! I'm new to the forum and am excited to be moving to all-grain soon. Thank you for having me! :P

So to answer the question list, here goes:

1. I'm from central Louisiana, Pineville-Alexandria area. I currently live in Spring, TX near Houston.

2. I stumbled across BIABrewer.info by doing a Google search on BIAB. I have been looking to change my style a little and to expand so I'm trying to get as much information as I can!

3. So far this site is awesome! The thing that has helped me the most is the calculator as well as the simple but effective explanations of the methods to BIAB.

4. I have "brewed" 3 times now. I quotation brewed because the first attempt was a hard cider which was never boiled so I don't know if that counts, it did turn out amazing however! My second attempt was a partial mash clone of Sweetwater 420 Extra Pale Ale. That one really got my gears turning and showed me how much that I wanted to do this. The third brew was a partial mash Blueberry Cream Porter that I added a little lactose to. I would love to say that this one turned out great since I was super excited about it, but the blueberry flavoring that I used tastes fake to me and isn't what I was going for. Thankfully the taste has mellowed and the last 2 gallons that I now have in the keg are pretty good! I build my kegerator back in August out of an old chest freezer that I fabricated a collar for. I have been using my turkey fryer and pot up to this point for my boils.
I have now acquired an old half barrel keg that I have cut the top off of and added a SS ball valve with dip tube to. I will be using my new setup with a BIAB bag I purchased online this upcoming week and am really excited to be moving to an all-grain recipe for a Chocolate Vanilla Porter. Wish me luck!

5. I run a flight school at a private airport here in Spring. We train general aviation pilots as well as people who want to fly for a living. I also have been married for 7 years now and have a beautiful 2 year old little lady.

I hope to be pretty active on here as I'm sure I'll have several questions after this first attempt. Thank you for creating this site for us to reference. :salute: Have a great one!

Hi KMathews and welcome to BIAB central!

It sound like you already have the brew bug and like us, found it highly contagious!

Almost everything you need to know (about BIAB) is here. If there is anything you can't find, just ask, someone will know and we will help.

Next stop, great beer! :thumbs:

Hi, I'm from the UK but been in East Sydney for 10 years & been brewing for the past 5.

My first ever brew, a kit was a disaster, undrinkable, pitched the yeast way too hot… could have been the kit though, not to be put off I immediately started adding grains, extract, hops and was quickly into concentrated stove top allgrain biab. It seemed a great technique to learn basic allgrain and perfect for a small space with limited equipment. Now I'm regularly biab-ing with a keg, burner and gravity fed immersion chiller out of what just about passes as a garage.

Im looking to try some no chilling to make extra family time though it could be so I no longer have to carry buckets & buckets of water all the way down the steps to the unplumbed garage.

Cheers!

Hey all,

I'm originally from Boston U.S.A. moved to Austin, TX 3 years ago. Retired and now checking off a bucket list item, homebrewing.
I have built a keezer and have a 2 keg setup. Have done a few mini mash brews and have decided to go AG and BIAB seems the best way to go to me. I found out about the site from homebrewtalk.com. Love what I see so far. Am gonna do a Northern English Mild today.

Cheers

Hi to One and All,

Yesterday I completed my first ever BIAB, I brewed a modified American Amarillo Pale Ale.

Upon starting the Brew I realised that I was really unprepared , I couldn't work out how to use BIABacus correctly, the full boil volume baffled me and I hadn't weighed my grain and hops exactly, I had simply rounded the figures up.

I forgot to note the exact time that I started the mash and I was unsure of the correct temperature to mash at. I also forgot to take a pre-boil gravity reading.

At the end of it all I have 23 litres of Wort, with a Gravity reading of 1058, exactly as predicted in BIABacus, so perhaps I did understand the figures after all.

Already planning next weekends brew and this time I will study the recipe in more detail , having said that I am sure it will turn out fine , after all its only beer isn't it?

Thanks to all who contribute on here without whom my jump to All Grain Brewing would never have happened,

Cheers Guys

Congratulations on your first BIAB flybiza :clap:. You've dont a great job doing your first brew without any one on one help. Good on you! Getting set up the day before and making a checklist can make asurprising diference for how smoothly the day goes so give that a whirl on the next run.
