Second BIAB-Update

Bottled first attempt and went again.Got 22 750 ml bottles, so not so bad in the end.


This brew   4.6 kg British pale ale malt,250 g Crystal, 100g Nelson sauvon with S-05 as always.. This time added 28litres of water and mashed for 1hr, 40min @ 68c.Then boiled for 60 mins with only 10g bitter and all of the rest in the last 15 mins including 25g at flame out.


Much more mellow boil with lid half on and got 24 lites in fermenter with 3 litre mark…
