So i just finished my first all grain…went for a roughly 3.5 gallon batch using biab. I say rougly as I lost alot due to boilover
I haven’t stepped up to using a wort chiller, so this was chilled with an ice bath. The extract batches I’m used to have left considerable amounts of trub in the kettle, which settled fairly well, and I could manage to dump most of my wort while leaving the trub in the kettle.
This biab batch had almost no settled trub compared to what i’m used to. I’d say the ice bath cooled to aroun 75 in about 30 minutes…which is about usual. Most of my bittering hops were shot out of the kettle in the boilover…so that could be the reason for at least a bit less.
Is there a considerable difference between extract / all grain and kettle trub??
