I know this isn't a PBW thread, but a 8lbs container is only 37.99 from NB. Considering brewing is 90% cleaning/sanitation, I think that is a pretty good investment.

Did my first BIAB this last weekend using pretty much the same type of setup as the OP of this thread. Even though I thought I was making mistakes, lo and behold, all the numbers hit exactly where they were supposed to be. I was actually quite shocked to tell the truth. So I give the OP and BIAB my endorsement.

I have to give a thumbs up to beer smith. I hit the numbers it calculates all the time using the BIAB setting.

Looks interesting. I'll have to try this method soon. Having too many issues with PM brewing lately.

So obviously this is an AG method, but what's the deal with sparge water? In PM brewing, I'd sparge and get to my pre-boil volume. In this, it appears that you're mashing in the entire batch volume (plus some, to account for grain absorption). Since there's no sparge, what's the volume/rate for mashing?
I used to use this calculator for full-volume mashing which works OK. I have since reverted back to 1.25-1.50 quarts / pound of grain for calculating mash volume and getting the rest of the volume from a 'ghetto sparge' setup.

While not a true 'no sparge' BIAB brew, it goes get me 8+ points of efficiency.

Please share some details on the "ghetto sparge"
