I was planning on brewing an all grain batch of NB Brickwarmer the first week of January, however, couldn't get to it. It was pre crushed a few days before Christmas. Would you still use the grains or are they going to be too stale. I won't be able to brew until this weekend. Thanks guys
No, I did a batch sparge. Things went well. Had 12.75lbs of grain with room to spare, but if in the future I want a big batch, I'd like to use some of that room. It wont collapse cause it's stainless steel, the copper idea is great though. Knew someone here had good idea of what to do. Thanks
Did my first all grain today in a new mash tun. What suprised me was that I had 2 gallons of dead space. I thought this was a bit excessive. Does anyone else have this issue, or should I chop down the feet a bit? Thanks in advance for any advice/tips. John
Just remember that it's a fun hobby. I think my all-grain come out better, however, my issue is finding the time due to having children. If you've won a few medals already, you won't have any issues going all-grain.
