+1 to mysticmead. No off flavors from double crushing or squeezing. Squeeze the heck out of that thing! More wort = More beer!

Really? I've never Really squeezed the bag because I read on here it would give tannin flavours. I just let it drain until my arms get tired and toss it. I'll squeeze from now on.

The only time I had problem with tannins using BIAB was when I mashed too high and overshot my mash out temp.

This is really good to know. Looks like I might be jumping up to 10 gallon batches too. My wife scored me a sweet 15.5 gallon keg today and I already have a keggle made.

Might be tough doing full volume BIAB with only a keggle or 15.5, for that reason I'm getting a 20gal from Spikebrewing once he gets them in stock. Woooo! My calculations using the biabbrewer.info calc shows that I can do 10 gal batches with a OG of around 1.080 which will give around 19.5 gallons full mash volume.

Of course the other option with a 15 is to top-off after mashing. I prefer the all volume though and my poor 10gal AL pot is just not cutting it - I overflow on 1.052-1.054+ OG batches.

I've done a 10 gallon BIAB batch a couple of times in a keggle with a two-three gallon batch sparge. It is fine for a medium strength beer but I wouldn't go over about an OG of 1.080.

I would def be doing session style beers for 10 gallon batches in a 15.5 gal keggle.

Did my first BIAB this morning. Got a 75% efficiency, not too shabby. In a few weeks we will see how it turns out.

Stupid question- that an aquarium thermometer (and if so why?) or a heater (self explanatory).

Looks like a garage, and an aquarium heater. Some people do that to hold fermentation temps in there garage.
