So I brewed today so naturally I'm already thinking about my next batch. I've gotten the hang of extract batches and I'm looking to move more towards BIAB, mainly to lower my ingredient costs. Figure if my batches cost half as much then I could brew twice as often without feeling bad. The main problem is doing 5 gallon batches I only have a 7 gallon kettle and I'm not in a place financially to buy a larger one right away. I'm just wondering what options might be best with what I have. Do I just do a smaller boil, add a smaller amount of DME to really pump up the gravity and then top off with water like an extract batch? Managed a 5 gallon boil today and it was close, had only about an inch to spare during hot break, ended up with roughly 4.5 gallons in the fermenter before topping up. Do I press my luck and attempt a 5.5 gallon boil and pray for no boil over? I've seen some on here talk about doing two boils and combining them but I don't think that's really an option for me if I'd have to do one after the other. Today was crazy, managed to cram most of my brewing in during my son's nap and between that, wrangling him and trying to clean up while wrangling him I'm wiped. So yeah if I could get some advice on the best way to proceed then I can hit you guys up for more advice in the recipe forum If I can find a reliable and effective way to make my batches with my current equipment I may just put off upgrading my kettle long term until I can get one of those electric all-in-ones.
