I just use the same bag. Once I'm done with the grains, I dump them out and thoroughly rinse off the bag and use it for all my hops additions. I've not had any problems. I hate straining stuff.

I boil water, fill up sanitized gallon jugs and freeze it. My boil ends up at 3 gallons, I cut open the ice jugs and pour the wort on top. I got to 64* in about 20 minutes last night.
