I think I will try my paint strainers for my first batch and see how it goes. I'll have around 12.5 lbs of grain for an IPA in it. I'm looking to upgrade my pot at some point, so I'll try to hold off on a wilserbrewer bag until I know what size I need.

I never have grain double crushed doing BIAB and never have any issues-bucket is always topped off heavy in fact I'm usually a couple points higher than suggested OG but if I'm a couple points low I don't sweat it either--I remember having problems when first getting started but I got told to have a jar of honey to fix low gravity with haven't had to use any in awhile--far as crushed grain I order through More Beer-Northern & Brewmasters Warehouse
