    After asking about Maxi BIAB a week
    Or so ago I have gone for it!

    I used brewer’s friend for the first time and came up with the recipe below.

    4.6kg Lager malt
    0.3kg Crystal

    40g Magnum 11% @ 60 mins
    30g Chinook 13% @ 15 mins

    13L mash underway in a spare bucket.



    My grain bag isn’t big enough for the bigger Mash bucket, so I’ll use it to strain and then dunk sparge with 6L in a 15L bucket later, hopefully that plan will work :hat:

    So I rigged up a Filtration / Lauter isn’t setup using my bottling bucket, mashing bag and an upturned colander to support my ‘too small’ bag!

    Seems to have worked Ok, but need to improve my sparging technique as it got a bit stuck / airlocked!

    Onto the boil now, 15L pan quite full with a bit more for topping up!

    Here’s a pic of my patented “double towel wrap” mash tun - only lost 1 degree over 60 minutes with a stir at halfway!

    Oh, and the door to my garage

    Dry hopped this last night with 40g Cascade and 80g Chinook.

    Hoping this will make a nice sessionable ale over a Christmas!

    Bottled tonight, quite a tasty brew straight from the FV and relatively clear after a 48hr crash cool in my fermentation fridge!
