Or do I keep the grains in the mash water and add more water and stir and then drain into the kettle? The second options seems more like a mashout technique, but the first seems like I wouldn't be rinsing as many sugars off the grains since they wouldn't be submerged. Theoretically I could miss a few spots in the grain bed by just pouring water through them while suspended over the BK. Thoughts?
Either way will work. Technically, when doing BIAB, the sparge occurs when your bag of grain drains back into your kettle. Really, you don't even need to rinse them unless you are looking to add volume to your pre-boil volume.

I would do a mashout first though. After the mash, heat your kettle with the grains still in it up to about 170F and then let it rest for about 10 minutes or so before pulling your bag.

Cool! Based on the displacement of the basket I have, my original 1.25qts/lb would probably not have covered my grains so I just decided to do a full volume mash. 5.5 target volume, 11lbs grain = ~1.1 gal absorbed, ~1 gal boil off = 7.5 gallons total volume mash. Wish me luck! First all grain attempt!

Good luck! I've got about 20 BIAB batches in and I love it!

I did all extract brewing before I discovered BIAB and while I thought I was making good beer doing extract brewing, I was AMAZED at how much better AG brewing really is! I think you'll be pleased!

Well, my mash only lost 1 degree after one hour. So far so good. Boil is nearly done! Just gotta figure out what to do with all the spent grains.

Finally made the switch from all extract to all grain BIAB this past weekend! I loved it and will never go back!! I forgot to take any pics since I was too focused on hitting my numbers and making sure I didn't mess anything up.

The BIAB bags I bought were from fellow HBT'er wilserbrewer. If anyone is looking for bags I highly recommend wilserbrewer. They shipped the day after purchase and are high quality.

Can't wait for my next brew day.

Definitely agree to both points!

2 BIAB batches down. Many more to go.

Can someone point me in direction of more recipes/ideas for grains?
