Derek, thanks, think I missed the difference from my intended OG. Will have to sit back down with it to see if it matches up for me

Congratulations, now the work really starts, but it will be a labor of love. Good luck and good brewing

I am struggling to see how to get where I want with no sparge. For 6 gallons of a pilsner I have made before, I need 10.61# grain at 75% eff. To go full on no sparge, I need 35.36 quarts in my mash, which come out to 3.33qt/# which according to the chart will net me around 1.04 OG roughly, while I am shooting for 1.05. My profile has been adjusted to get only 5.5% boil off (and I have never been that low in the past, just trying to limit the amount of starting water as much as possible,) but I do have about .4G of deadspace. How do you no sparge for a beer this size with roughly the figures I have outlined? No Sparge is something I have wanted to do, but just cant seem to get the numbers I want to see in software to make the jump. Single infusion for the bulk of water and add a mashout step with boiling water to keep the WTG lower on the actual mash (seems to require too much of a second infusion or way too high of a temp)? Any thoughts would be a great help

One note though, you say the store rep said once it reaches projected FG it's done. That may not be true, under the right circumstances, it could go lower and thus cause problems after time in bottle if you are bottling. The target FG is just that, a target. You won't know it's done until you get consistent matching gravities a couple days apart or it hits the same as your FFT. This last of what I said has already been stated above, I just wanted to clarify the part about the "target" to avoid potential bottle bombs if you bottle

Yes, spur of the moment bottling would be a sticking point for me and 5-6 gallon batches, I know you are doing significantly less, so no problem

Nice, glad its working out. Did you have to bottle at some crazy hour to hit the brix correctly?

Nice to see you on here again. You can but do not need to sparge. Sparging should get more sugars out of your grain bed, but dilutes your OG. You just need to plan out the recipe for one way or the other to be close to you target. I have not done BIAB, but his is what I understand about the process

Sounds about like my experience, although mine is on a much shorter timeline. Started with fermenting in a bucket with ice bottles, found a deal on a smallish chest freezer and a controller for fermentation, bought an abandoned side by side from one of our storage facilities, and finally got most of my hops out of the upright freezer in the garage. We have a small beverage fridge upstairs for beer, soda, and occasionally wine. The side by side is in basement with fridge side full of home brew while the freezer side is packed with hops. There are still a couple pounds of hops in the garage freezer. If any of these crap out on me, it will be a priority to replace, as i have become too accustomed to having this much space. Having a DBF is great, even though there is usually some soda in there. Cheers to having yours back MDixon.
