Just did my 1st all grain Beer in a Bag beer...a 2.5 gallon trial of a wild yeast.
The brew in a bag went smooth...I took 5 lbs of crushed grain and tied it up
in a 5 gallon nylon paint strainer bag....pre heated my 5 gallon vertical gott water
cooler....Orange btw....with hot tap water. Put in the bag of crushed grain
and filled the orange water cooler with 168*f water to get a mash temp of 158...
Which was a bit high but shrug.... stirred the grain with a giant wire whisk..
removing the dough balls...and then closed the lid for an hour....couple times
I went in the container and dunked the bag like a tea bag...rinsing the sugar out.
I pulled the bag...let it drain and set it into another pot...where it proceeded to
drain while I dumped the rest of the wert into the BK...for a beer as usual boil.
Pretty dang easy and the numbers were not that far off...O.G. was 1.056...
somewhat high due to my over zealous boil and evap rates which were incorrect.
I was shooting for 1.050
Temp was pretty warm in this photo it finished at 1.056
