I brewed probably 8 extract batches before Christmas when my wife bought me an awesome bag for BIAB (brewinabag.com highly recommended). Thank god she did because most of my extracts were terrible and my AG have been great.
Just go for it. I am still doing BIAB and have no ambition to get a mash tun. It makes for a super simple start into all grain. You wont regret it.
