I use these to tie around the gathered end of the bag to hang it...works great, one end has a twist that, when looped, flattens out and tightens itself.

Soft Loop Tie Downs

I purchase a bag that had loops/webbing already attached. You can see it in this picture.

(volume is 10 lbs of 2-row and one pound of carapills)
Check your local Lowes. They are having some great deals on Bayou Classic stock pots.. yes, aluminum is fine.

With a simple dunk sparge a 7.5 gallon pot is adequate

The dunk sparge is key. Squeezing a hot bag of grain is for the birds.

From what I've read (I may be completely wrong here, maybe mysticmead or someone more experienced than me can chime in) you aren't supposed to raise and hold temps at 170f for mashout.

The proper way to mashout is to raise from mash temps to 170f over a 10 minute period.

Since I started BIAB I've been raising the temp to 170, usually taking about 5-10 minutes, then leaving it there for 10-15. Consistently get 75% efficiency with a standard LHBS crush.

you can raise it slowly to 168-170F and then pull the bag... you can raise it slowly and hold for 10-15 mins...you can raise it quick as well. Going to 168-170F does a couple things. It stops the conversion process and it makes the dissolved sugars less viscous, that in turns helps with the extraction.

Of course, you don't have to do a mash out. There are times when I just don't feel like doing a mash out and if there's a decrease in efficiency it's only 1-2 points.

Read this thread above, mash out if you like, don't bother if you like...

I don't bother ususally. Technically speaking it doesnt matter much, some love it, some don't believe in it.

Some very knowledgeable people in the referenced thread consider the mashout "myth busted" regarding higher efficiency and BIAB. cheers!

Does anyone steep their specialty grains separately at the end of the mash instead of mashing them with your base malt?
