I’m brewing in a bag for the first time tomorrow (I’ve only don’t extract before) and I have a few questions.
The only hops I’m putting in are going to be a whirlpool (I’ll also be dry hopping). Since I won’t be boiling any hops, do I still need to do a 60 min boil after my mash is done?
I’m pretty sure an hour is standard for making the mash. Should I check my sugar around then and see if my OG is close to my target? If it’s not should I boil more and/or add more grains?
I’ve heard squeezing the bag at the end can create an off flavor, but I’ve also read it’s a myth. Thoughts?
I’m sure I’ll have more questions in a bit.
Thanks in advance
