Brewing in Anvil 5.5 gal kettle.
Have to use a little less water for the BIAB mash (4 gallons) and then sparge with the remaining .94 gallons (120.32 oz)

-Hops & spices added to a hops bag to lessen the trub.
-Add 4 oz maltodextrin during last 10 minutes of boil with remaining hops & spices.

-Primary fermentation in the kettle for 14 days.

Optional: Rack to secondary fermenter for 14 days to add spices and to clear a bit. Racking should stir up those lazy yeasties.

For the first batch I will use Mangrove Jack's Belgian Ale Yeast M41 (Spicy and phenolic, this yeast emulates the intensity and complexity of some of the best monastic breweries in Belgium. High attenuation and alcohol tolerance.)

For the second batch I will use Mangrove Jack's Belgian Tripel Yeast M31 (Provides a fantastic complex marriage of spice, fruity esters, phenolics and alcohol. It is also very attenuative with a high alcohol tolerance.)
