Finally got around to brewing the doppel bock. Boiling as I type.
33 lb grain bill was definitlely getting close to the limits of my BIAB system. Green Bay Rackers "can I mash it" calculated I'd need 12.5 gallons of space...haha...It was closer to 14 and change in my 16 gallon BK/MT.
Pulling the bag proved a bit problematic...my pulley, wieight capacity of 250 lbs, wasn't very helpful or I wasn't strong enough...had to stand on a stool next to the kettle and lift with one hand while pulling the rope with the other...then lowering it was not much fun either...but I got it done. If I want to do grain bills this size BIAB again I'll have to get a power hoist of some kind. I'm too old for this shite.
