The AIH Partial Mash Brew In A Bag Kit is different.Our Partial Mash BIAB kits offer a "no-sparge" brewing alternative for those who don't want to deal with fly sparging or batch sparging. Our Partial Mash BIAB kits use a full volume mash in a single step, mash and drain. Time is saved by not doing a sparge. By skipping the sparge, the risk of oversparaging the grains is eliminated.Unlike Extract brewing, you aren't just steeping your grains, you're mashing them. The mash is a mixture of malted grains and water. Mashing is the process of holding the malted grains in a pre-measured amount of water at 152 degrees Fahrenheit for a certain amount of time to allow enzymes to convert the starches into fermentable sugars. During this time the grains give off their color and flavor (just like steeping did) but they also have enzymes that convert starches into fermentable sugars.View The Dragons Milk Stout Partial Mash Recipe Instructions here.

I simply love what this beer tastes like. I have always loved Dragon's Milk and while the OG wasn't as high as the recipe suggested, it doesn't detract from the flavor. I took the liberty of adding 2 vanilla beans to secondary and soaked the included wood chips in Marker's Mark before adding all that stuff to the secondary for a few weeks. I pitched 2 packs of 05 and it got down to 1.015. The flavor is warming, complex and delicious. The ONLY concern I have about this beer is that it is still a little flat for my liking. I like stouts to be only modestly carbonated and this one - after 3 weeks in the bottle at 70 degrees only pours a hint of head. That being said, I'd rather a slightly flat stout than one that pours with a ton of bubbles and is overcarbonated. If this beer ends up getting a tad more carbonation it will have been the best beer I've made in over 125 batches. Even if it doesn't, I think it's one of the 10 best I've made and certainly one I'll make again next year for the holiday season of 2020.
