so i just brewed my 4th all grain batch. i am doing biab 3 gallon batches. my efficiency today was 71% and this is up from the last three of about 68%.
anyway, i find that i'm having of trouble with lots of sediment in my final bottled beers. I've tried several different ways of transferring to carboys but find i am still getting loads of sediment(while using whirfloc). is this just inherent in biab? i'm very close to just jumping to batch sparing because i realized the cooler i want is much smaller for apartment storage than i originally thought. anyway, does sparging through the grain bed help cut down on lots of sediment?
longer post than i thought but i wanted to provide ample amounts of info.
also, i love the 3 gallon batch because, so far, i have brewed 4 different beers. i am loving variety. second question: does batch sparging still work with smaller batches in a large cooler that i could still use to do 5 gallon batches?
sorry for the multiple question thread. i just sort of realized i did this. but all these things have been in my head at the same time.
thanks for any and all help!
