For those of us brewing with malted barley, as opposed to malt extract. It's not as hard as it sounds, so why not give it a go? The mash tun beckons.

Hit an OG of 1.037, so a bit on the low side. Recipe said to expect 1.050, assuming proper all grain method of course.

Well hopefully it'll ferment well and I'll get at least 4% from it. Tasted a bit on the weak side too. Only a small quantity of hops with that kit, all went in at 60mins. Stuck to the recipe anyway, the wheat beer yeast should boost the flavour too.

Hi Joe_h

I have done a few BIAB partial mashes and when is comes to the sparging i usually heat the sparge water up to 75c and when the grains have drianed a bit put the bag with the grains into the sparge water and dip the bag up and down for about 10mins (like a tea bag) this will help get better conversion you can get better efficiency.just something
that you might want to try.

When doing a partial mash at what stage do you steep speciality grains?

Do you add them to the mash after 15-30 mins? or steep in the wort after the mash is complete?
