I am brewing a firestone double barrel ale clone this week and it has three or four different steeping grains. Should I put all the grain in the same bag and steep or put them into thier own bags??

I want to get all the flavor from the grain.

One bag should work fine. Just make sure all the grain is well into the water.

When im using multiple steeping grains i like to mix the grains up in the bag just in case there are some dry spots or anything like that.

The main consideration is loose, to allow water circulation and good flavor extraction.
