Default BIAB recipe questions

I've only recently started brewing again and to date have brewed a brewer's best kit (turned out fine) a partial from a recipe I found here (turned out great) and finally a BIAB all grain that the jury is still out on.
My questions are, can I brew any all grain recipe using BIAB method without making any kind of adjustments (and if I do need to make adjustments, what are they?) and finally is it possible to convert a partial recipe to all grain? thanks for any advice.

In my experience, yes, but I'm probably missing some exceptions. There are very few exceptions, if any.

Absolutely. Replace a pound of DME with 1.7 pounds of base malt, and a pound of LME with 1.3 pounds of base malt. These numbers might vary depending on your efficiency, so you might want to use a calculator like Beer Calculus to dial these numbers in.

Thanks for the help. Time to get to work.
