I’ve been wanting to try out BIAB for quite some time now. I view it as cool way to try something new and keep the hobby fresh for me. I am also very interested in the ins and outs of how BIAB works scientifically by tracking the numbers and making sense of the BIAB folklore.
This week, we sample my first batch, a small batch, of BIAB Kölsch. It’s a very cool style and an easy drinking beer. It is a good beer to make this time of year to take advantage of cooler fermentation temperatures.
We both found this beer to be a pretty good example of the style. I used only Pilsner malt this time around. We thought for next time that a little more depth in flavor might be warranted. I may add a touch of Vienna or Munich in the grist but we will see.
We discuss in this video 3 or 4 observations I made while giving my first BIAB a try.
Hope you enjoy the video.
