    A Guide To All-grain Brewing In A Bag

    Wow! I link this thread on other forums when someone asks of the history of BIAB. Just went to link it again and see it has been unpinned. I'm happy to update the original post (always have been and wish I could), so any reason it was unpinned?

    Poor Mash Efficiency

    Hi Mister Clark, That was me who replied to the thread. It's been a long time since I have had time to write on AHB but I saw this thread and as I had just answered a very similiar question to yours on another forum, thought I'd jump in. In my post, I asked you to read the thread on the other...

    Birthday Drinks

    Haven't done a post in the old birthday thread for years! All the best to you Stu :super: . Also see a few other old names above - great stuff! Hope you have all been behaving just as well as we did five/ten years ago and doing lots of belly dancing. (I am never doing that again :unsure:!)...

    A Guide To All-grain Brewing In A Bag

    Hey there fella ;). Wow, it's been such a long time since we had a beer! Great to see you are still into it and haven't forgotten the humble beginnings :beer: . I'm having a bit of a writing break atm after having written over four million words between this site and BIABrewer.info, not to...

    Sydney Thu 11/12 - Mini-Crawl starting 6pm Lord Nelson

    Apologies for the slow response Bunny Bunyip. I only got back to Perth late the day before yesterday and have done two really long days since. Was great to meet a few new Sydney Brewers above but we didn't talk about beer much for some strange reason. First time that has happened??? I think I...

    Sydney Thu 11/12 - Mini-Crawl starting 6pm Lord Nelson

    A few of us are catching up for a beer tomorrow night starting at the Lord Nelson (19 Kent Street, The Rocks). As to whether we actually do a mini-crawl, who knows? We might end up being too lazy :blink:. Let me know here if you want to join us and I'll send you my mobile number. We'll make...

    PERTH ROYAL BEER SHOW 2013 - Now 2014

    Probably the only reason to enter this year (2014). Just going to copy and paste a bit of what I just wrote on BIABrewer... :D Such a shame this comp is becoming less and less for amateurs every year. Nev, what does Dan reckon?

    BIAB legacy podcast

    I'm short on time for the next few days but am making good progress on getting the BIABacus help written so you should have access to a proper release within a couple of weeks. I'll run through some of the questions asked above but accept my apologies if it takes a few days to reply to further...

    BIAB legacy podcast

    Ruckus, I'll come to you in a minute but I really want to knock this full-volume / who invented BIAB thing on the head. It's not important but I don't like credit being taken away from the many people on this site who made it mainstream. We spent many posts and many hours doing this. If...

    BIAB legacy podcast

    Deary me! Lol! If it's okay with you guys, I'd prefer this thread be focussed on the podcast which was about explaining things full-volume brewing has enabled us to learn. The single vessel, full-volume brewing method enables a real clarity of things that I think we are losing here in this...

    BIAB legacy podcast

    Ha! Did I write that above? That was after spending 6 hours on one dynamic picture to make the BIABacus really fast to learn. One error meant starting the diagram from scratch which occurred three times. There have been quite a few days like that :D. Everything takes a lot longer than expected...

    BIAB legacy podcast

    Thanks Nev for posting the thread :icon_cheers:, I only had 24 hours notice on the podcast but I think I managed to mention AndrewQLD, stux, crusty and JamesSquire. Apologies I couldn't mention more people but it's hard to think on the go and I suppose you can't mention everyone in an hour...

    Who invented BIAB?

    Thanks for your reply Sean. I think this is the real key and is the point that Andrew was hoping to highlight. Like so much of brewing terminology, the term, 'brew in a bag,' in hindsight, is quite ambiguous. While BIAB has a nice ring to it, a far better description would be something...

    Who invented BIAB?

    :D Lol! Thanks Biz. I should have left that post for Monday I think. Had already written a lot on Sunday and by the time I got to here had rewarded myself with a few beers. Lucky I lost half the post - interesting stuff for me but probably would have bored the hell out of everyone else :blink...

    Who invented BIAB?

    Hey there fellas :icon_cheers: , Received a heads up on this thread yesterday and have enjoyed the read. Thanks very much for remembering me. I do really appreciate it and wish that teleporting was the go so as I could drop in and have a beer with a few of you that have posted here but I...

    WA English Ale Fest, Interested ?

    Maybe I should have ridden a pushie instead of driving from East Freo? It certainly would have been great to be able to indulge in a bit more furious suckling of taps and bottles :huh:. Thanks Nev for putting it on even though it was an English Ale day (wtf?). I have told sinkas that you all...

    Qld Xmas 2012 Case Swap..Venue Changed

    And best pic captions goes to post #475. I can't find an emoticon for how much that post cracked me up Sqyre. Mrs Syre: No more skype sex during swaps okay? Ned kept getting in the way of the screen and that really put me off :angry:. His Dad cheering in the background was also a bit...
