denny:
I'm looking for some info on this technique for my NHC presentation.  If you've done it, let me know.

babalu87:
I did it with two beers
I can send you the info over the weekend......recipe, what my normal gravity would have been over what it was with BIAB and anything else I/you can think of.

denny:
That would be great.  Be sure to let me know how much water you used....that seems to be one thing that most of the writeups don't mention.

Your strike/dough in water, is every last drop of water that you will put in the whole batch. Its all the water that would normally go in at strike, all the water for any infusions and all that water that would normally be used to sparge. ALL of it. As an example. in this batch we were looking for a pre-boil volume of 27.3 litres (7.2 gallons) and were using 6.45kg (14.2lb) of grain. So accounting for absorption by the grain, our total water needed was 35litres (9.25gal) and thats how much we mashed in with. The Full Volume.

denny:
Thanks, man.  That's what I though, but none of the references I'd found so far confirmed it.

EDIT:  The BN link was what I had looked at before, but just missed the water amount. Thanks again!
