I made my first mini-mash brew this weekend. It was the Oktoberfest kit from morebeer.com. I just used a nylon grain bag and did the mash in a bottling bucket for about an hour. Started the sparge and proceeded to brew just like it was an extract kit. I pitched the yeast (White Labs Oktoberfest lager) and let it sit for a couple days.

I'm getting little activity in the airlock, but I'm not too concerned with that. I can see all the hop particles flowing around the inside of the carboy so I know it is fermenting nicely. But I feel like I have a TON of sediment in the carboy. Is this normal for mini-mash/all-grain brews? I feel like the grain bag didn't strain a lot of the really crushed grain and ended up in the carboy.

Ya you'll get a lot more particles when mashing.
