Re: Hoegaarden clone

If you haven't done a step mash and ever want to - it's a piece of cake with BIAB. Very easy. Partially pull bag and heat to higher temperature, lower bag and cover it again.

Re: Hallertau Family of hops

Cool deal. Let me know how it works out.

I'm planning to brew a Maerzen Rauch Bier later this summer, for fall consumption. Never have brewed a smoke beer before so will be an adventure.

Jamato - I saw those as well... For me, no problem working with mesh bags on the side of the keg until I did batches with too much wort and hops, and then felt there was too much hops and debris in bag to be effective. Felt I was losing utilization. Ended up making a Hop Spider. Initially used a pai...

Re: Looking for yummy recipes for wife

Crunch, I would not recommend making a beer where you finish over 1.040. That sounds horrible! Even if you start big (like 1.070 or 1.080), I would think you would want to finish in the low 1.020s at a minimum, and likely in the teens. And this is a guess without looking at past recipes or brews. Do...

Welcome to the forum Hewy! Don't let the BIBacus scare you. It's all on one page. And download the Clear Brewing Terminology page as well so you can make sense of the terms the BIAB pioneers developed to describe different parts of the BIAB brewing process.

I can vouch that Deschutes' Fresh Squeeze IPA is a fabulous beer, for those of us that love hop flavor but do not want an over-the-top bitter IPA. And it's not a New England style either... Somewhere in-between. Fresh Squeeze IPA is my favorite IPA right now. Link from their Deschutes Brewery's webs...

Re: My First Post! - Post here to become Fully Registered

Hum... 25 liters is 6.6 gallons. Quote a bit. I have a 16 gallon pot and can normally get to around 9 gallon beer batches. 9 Gallons is 34 liters. I would shoot for a brew kettle in the 15-16 gallon range to give you excess capability to ensure you can do this. 57-61 liter kettle size...looks like.

Welcome to the forum, Andy!

Let us know if you have any questions you have, moving forward. And doing 5 gal into fermenter size batches with BIAB is pretty easy too... You just need larger brew pot, etc.
