So I'm thinking of trying to do a BIAB batch. I won a 18.5 gallon aluminum pot with a basket from a raffle at my son's school. To make it easier, can I just order an all grain kit from Midwest? I do have the beersmith software. I can just put in the information to get the water volumes, right?

Yes, I've made good BIAB beer from Midwest kits.
The tricky part (until you've used the pot a few times) is to get your boil-off numbers dialed in.
Make sure you take pre-boil gravity and volume measurements so you can adjust if needed.
Beersmith is very helpful if you need to re-run some numbers before boil to hit target gravity and volumes.
Good luck!

I guess I put the batch size as 5 gallons. Right?
