You did all the work of a PM but didn't reap the benefits. Go for it! It's not hard. Sparging is tough with a grain bag. One thing I've tried is to let the bag drip and pour over hot water to rinse the grains. The thing I like the most about pm is the greater depth if malt flavors

Here is a good way to keep your Mash Temps stable without having to check it constantly:
1. Preheat oven to 170F
2.Heat your water to 160ish
3.add grains and put the cover on your brewpot.
4 TURN OFF oven and put your brewpot in the oven for your mash time

This way you will keep a consistant temp in the 150s and not have to fuss over it
