I'm planning to brew my first BIAB batch shortly, and am just planning the process. I'd appreciate if someone could have a look and any suggestions are welcome. (I've done a couple of kits before, process went okay but flavour wasn't great.)
My recipe and grains are based on an AG kit from the malt miller - https://www.themaltmiller.co.uk/product ... ellbinder/
This comes with a fixed amount of grain (5690g) and the base malt & other grains are as supplied at 2 bags, so the total amount can't really be changed.
In terms of kit, I've got a 30L Burco Tea Urn, a fermenter, a cube, hydrometer. I don't have a wort chiller.
My planned process:
1. Heat Strike Water as per BIABacus (68.2deg)
2. Add Bag to Urn
3. Add Grains
4. 90min at ~67deg, insulation around kettle, check temp around 45min
5. Pull bag and wash grain in another bucket with 5L (67deg)
6. Add 5L to Kettle
7. Start Boil - 90min. Add hops at 60min (in voile bag), add Irish Moss at 15min (not in bag).
8. Put Towel over top then Lid on and cool overnight. (ambient temp here ~18/19deg)
9. Transfer to FV, Add 3L boiled & cooled water
10. Add yeast if wort is between 18-22deg.
A. On step 8 above, I'm not planning to transfer to the 20L cube I have, as I don't have a way to transfer without splashing yet (a better tap will be fitted later). The yeast will be pitched next morning - is this okay?
B The section W changes are to attempt to get the batch size up, suggestions welcome here.
I've attached the BIABacus, comments welcome!
