Jake's Cascadian Dark Ale - Brew in a Bag (BIAB

Recipe for three-gallon BIAB (Brew-in-a-Bag) version of Jake Keeler's house favorite Cascadian Dark Ale. As seen brewed in Brewing TV - Episode 54: Jake's Got a Brand New Bag.

For 3 gallon batch @ OG - 1.060

Put five gallons water into 8-gallon kettle
Strike water to 160F.
Line inside of kettle with mesh/straining bag.
Pour in all grains (grist below). Stir well, bust up any clumps,
Get water temp to 152-154F with heat or a bit of cool water (if needed).
Mash at that temp. for 75 min. Goose heat as needed.

Grist Bill
5.25 lbs American 2-Row
0.5 lb Carafa III
1.25 lbs Medium Crystal

After that 75 min has passed, take soaked grain bag out and drain above kettle in strainer (preferable) or colander until liquid has mostly been drained. Remove strainer/bag.

Jake's pre-boil gravity at this point was: 1.052 (13BRIX)

Bring to a boil.
Add hops as scheduled:
60 min  - .5 oz.  blend of Mt. Ranier, Palisade and Centennial pellets
10 min -  1 oz.  blend of Mt. Ranier, Palisade and Centennial pellets
5  min - 1.5 oz  blend of Mt. Ranier, Palisade and Centennial pellets

Finish boil. Cool wort to pitching temp.
Pitch yeast - Safale US05

And you just made all-grain beer. Boom.
