    Hi All,

    I just started brewing in January. I'm an extract brewer but I will probably try partial mash before too long. I always wanted to brew and once I bought a house in July wanted to get started. I receive my starter equipment for Christmas and have been brewing ever since. You can follow my brewing exploits at https://www.facebook.com/PiggeryBrewery/

    Thanks.

    Jim

    The jump from extract to brew in a bag (BIAB, a form of all grain brewing) is not that great. When you're comfortable with your extract routine, look into that

    Welcome!

    I agree with Jeff. If you can make runny oatmeal and then put it in a bag and squeeze it, you can do BIAB. And then you can really get in control of your recipes

    A friend is going to pass along his larger brew pot. I'll start the partial mash then. I read about BIAB and it should work well with the space I have.

    Thanks for the comments.
