Hey all, I got almost everything ready to brew my first partial mash recipe for tomorrow. However, my local brew store does not have any large mesh bags. i was wondering if anyone knows any generic stores (walmart, grocery store, etc) which carries large bags (im thinking 24 x 24 or something similar) i have a generic size steeping bag but i feel i need something bigger.
any ideas? i live in southern california.
also, what is the real differnece between using the steeping bag at conversion temps for the alloted time than using a larger back for the mini mash?
im assuming it has to do with more water getting to the grains if its spread out. any suggestions?
edit: btw im using only 2.5 lbs grains for the mash + 30z of pureed pumpkin
