Thanks! I was worried about the evaporation, assuming that the larger surface area would result in higher evaporation. I just did my 2nd biab this way. This time, I poured 4 cups of clean water over the steeping bag when I pulled it out to get all the flavors out of it, assuming that I would have room due to evap, but ended up with too much (started with 1.25 gal as directed). I am now not worried about the evaporation rate, but wanted to make sure I was not somehow losing flavor.
