Not as difficult as you might think. I started with BIAB and love it, i get around 90% eff most brews. Mash with 3litres per kg of grain the just sparge through the bag with water the same temp as my mash temp. After a couple of brews you'll be away!

This is a good cheap setup IMO.

if you're already doing full boil its a pretty easy switch - find a cooler and convert it to a mash tun. my first
all grain batch wasn't perfect, but instill made good beer. a few batches is all it takes to get your system dialed in so you hit all your numbers the whole way through, but there are plenty of things you can adjust if you're a little off at the time (temp, volume, gravity).
