I am interested in starting all grain brewing and was curious if I could use an all grain recipe kit in the same way that I use the biab kits form northern Brewer. The only difference between the kits is the amount of grain. The biab kits are made for 3 gallon finish volume and I believe the all grain kits are designed for 5 gallons. I’ve been using a ten gallon kettle and start my batches with 5.5 gallons to compensate for water loss s still end with about 4 gallons in the carboy.
So my questions are, will my kettle be large enough to make one of the all grain kits work, and will I be able to use only kettle without having a mash tun and lauter tun?
