    also baron, i put the ginger through a juicer first. collected the pulp and juice and put it all together in the boil up. be sure to tip the mix into a hop sock or similar in the FV to avoid the glogged keg i had first time round.

    just been reading some science stuff and it says the lower the temp the more oxygen will be absorbed. so i guess stirring and splashing at higher temps is pointless

    Hi all, Im keen as to start BIAB, as this seems the next logical step from extract. been reading the beersmith book and it sold me, also got the designing great beers book (sofar unread) so could i possibly get some help compiling a list of goodies im gunna need to accomplish this please. i already have kegs and FV's from extracting, an inkbird and heat belt, chest freezer for temp control, 2 taps sticking out of the fridge. so please fire away with any and all basics and essentials to get me goin im basing this around a 40lt urn and 19lt kegs Cheers and thanks in advance Al.
