Default First All Grain Brew Tomorrow Morning

I decided to take the plunge into all grain brewing (BIAB), and will have my first go at it tomorrow morning. Just got done crushing 28 lbs. of grain on my corona mill by hand. It was a bit more of an undertaking that I had anticipated, but I managed to get through it without to much difficulty. Hopefully I have enough energy to brew in the morning though! Anyway, with that said, here is where I need some last minute advice. I have a 20.5 gallon, Bayou Classic brew pot, and have a 28lb grain bill for a 10 gallon (final volume) recipe. Any reason to worry about too much mash volume or too much boil volume? I'm a little apprehensive that I'm going to be cutting it close and am hoping for some reassurance.

Btw, I wouldn't even try to attempt this feat without all of the information on this forum and for that I'm very grateful! Cheers!

I have a 72 quart cooler I mash in and 34 lbs in it today no problem. Never done BIAB, but I think you're good.

Haha I'm not sure if I'm ambitious or crazy, but either way I'm planning on it being a good learning experience. Hopefully, I'll be rewarded w/ a great brew in the end.

Good luck on your brewing adventures too!

Hope you have a pulley or something... That 28lb grain bill is about to get very heavy!

Good luck. I'm starting my first All-grain as soon as the wife gets back from the store.

+1 on this...28lb grain plus water is going to be heavy to pick up and hang and let drain.
