I’ve got a 10-gal pot and I’m planning on a 5-gal BIAB stout recipe. The grain bill calls for 10.5 lbs. of grain and the water calculation for 8.04 gals. for a single infusion mash (mash efficiency of 0.68%), runoff volume of 5.95 gals., final boil volume of 5.5 gals prior to be siphoned into the fermenter.
All calculations were from formulas in Designing Great Beers by Ray Daniels.
Will 10.5 lbs of grain and 8.04 gals of water fit into a 10 gal pot or do I need to start with less water and grain and then add extract to the boil and sanitized water to the fermenter?
Thanks in advance for your help.
