I do BIAB and often push the volume limits on my 10-gal pot. If I want to add water after the mashed grain has been pulled from the pot before I start the boil phase does it need to be treated like the mash water was?
Thanks in advance for your advice.
As long as you’re adding ‘make up’ water, may I recommend you pour it over your grain bed to get any additional sugars you may have left behind?
I only use brewing salts in the mash for pH. All other additions for flavor profile go in the kettle targeting post boil volume.
In my opinion, it doesn’t matter what volume you start with pre boil. The flavor profile for is post boil volume up to and including by-the-glass.
