What am i looking at for moving to all grain and can i do it with my current set up?
BIAB is "Brew in a bag". You don't use extract. Instead, you put all the grains in a large bag that's big enough to line your entire turkey fryer kettle. You heat the grains and water to a mash temp and hold it there for 60-90 minutes, then remove the grains. You then proceed with the regular boil with hop additions and such.
There's a rockin' thread with pictures stickied to the top of the "All grain" sub forum here.
The upside to this method is that you can go all grain and not use extract without having to get new hardware. And it's easy.
Some links (it can look intimidating at first, but really, it's super simple. There are even a few YouTube videos some people have made that show the basic steps.):http://www.brewersfriend.com/2009/06...rewing-method/http://www.thebrewingnetwork.com/for...pic.php?t=4650http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f36/biab...g-pics-233289/
