Do you use digital thermometers with a cord to measure temps? My traditional dial thermometers can't reach to the 8 gallon point in my keggle.

I agree, those bags are heavy when they're full of soaked grain. Do yourself a favor and get two fine mesh bags.

my full sized bag fits in a strainer that I bought at the LHBS. I am glad I dont have to mess with more than one bag. The beauty of BIAB is simplicity.

For 5 gallons a single bag should be fine; however, if your not a weight lifter, a 10 gallon batch will be difficult to lift using a single bag. If you are going for easiness then two bags is much easier one.

While two or more bags is an option, I feel one bag and a ratchet pulley can easily handle a keg full of grain.
