Aren't BIAB systems--manual or electronic--basically the antithesis of the LODO paradigm?
Well...I do manual BIAB in the boil kettle and I'm giving LODO a try with some tweaks to my process (pre-boil, SMB, no stir mash-in, Brewtan, etc.) and some small equipment additions (floating SS mash cap and post boil cap, large SS bowl with drain to under wort level for draining bag, etc.).
Brewed a German Pils last week and the FG sample tasted amazing. I'm going to try an ESB tomorrow.
We'll see in about a month.
I know, I know...a month ago I was poo-pooing LODO as too much trouble and "all-or-nothing". But I'm an incurable tinkerer. I can't help it.
