- What’s the difference between all-grain, partial mash and extract brewing? All-Grain brewing involves a process called “mashing” where grain is soaked in water for a long period of time to collect the sugar for fermenting. With extract and partial mash brewing this step has already been done for you, which means less time and equipment needed. Partial mashing can also be referred to as “steeping grains”.
- What is BIAB (Brew in a Bag)? BIAB is a great short-cut to all-grain brewing. You simply use a large grain bag in place of a mash tun. It’s not the most efficient method but if you’re not quite ready to invest in a mash tun but you want to up your game a bit, give it a try.
- What do I need to start All-Grain brewing? The main thing you need is more time. Doing an all-grain batch typically takes up an entire day. As for equipment, the main thing you need is a Mash Tun/Lauter Tun, there are many different types so I suggest doing some research. You will also need a brew pot large enough to do a full boil; so if you’re doing 5 gallons, you’ll need at least a 7 gallon kettle. Lastly you’re going to want a wort chiller of some kind. An immersion chiller is the simplest but again, do some reading to see what works best for your set-up.
