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.
