Back Again

October 30th brought my latest step out of homebrew retirement.  Now finally moved and settled, in Portland, I fired up the burner and make a ‘brew in  A bag’ American Amber ale.  The was my first time to do a BIAB, and I quite liked it.  It made for a pretty smooth and quick brew day.

I was able to get the wort down to 70F pretty fast with the tap water here in Portland, using only 20′ of 3/8 copper tubing.  I really don’t need more than 20′ of tubing for 5 gallon (or smaller) batches.
