How I Brew All Grain Beer Using the “Brew in a Bag” Method (BIAB)

Equipment
I use the BIAB method, and this video is a full brew-day how-to video.
I tried to keep it as short as possible, but there is a lot of steps.
The only step for this beer that was not filmed is the dry-hopping step, but that will take place in a week or two when I rack the beer to secondary. Perhaps I will post an update in another video.

The recipe I am using for this brew came from the Beersmith website, and was called “Galaxy Pond Pale Ale” …but since Galaxy hops are out of season right now, I had to substitute for Citra hops. So I suppose this is a “Citra Pond Pale Ale” Here is the recipe:
