Is that chocolate malt, or chocolate?

I just cracked my first bottle of this one. Three week ferment and just a week in the bottle but it's already bloody lovely.

Yeah, it's a belter. I based it on a grain bill from an Orkney Dark Island recipe but changed it a little and used different hops. I've done it with other hops, also really good.

Really good. Inevitably I'm down to the last few bottles, but I've already got another one on the go. No centennial this time, I've used a mixture of Magnum, Target and Aurora .

I've quaffed the last of this. If you haven't tried this, I urge you to give it a whirl. One of the nicest beers I've ever drank.

I also dry-hopped with another 15g of Centennial as well.

I'll be making more of this very soon. This was the beer that has convinced my brother in law to get into brewing.

Would I need to make any adjustments if I did this as BIAB ?
I was going to move from kits to small batch extract brewing, but may just skip extract and go straight to BIAB.
