You must have a much better pot than I do (or thicker blankets). When I do the one pot method I will lose about 15-20 degrees over and hour. I would not care about less than 5 degrees change.

Wow, 15-20 degrees. That seems like a lot. I have a 62qt Bayou Classic and when I hit my mash temp, I put the lid on, wrap a sleeping bag around it and let it ride. I pile up the extra sleeping bag material on top of the pot since most of the heat is lost out the top. My last batch only lost 1 degree in 60 minutes.

I did my first 5.5 gallon BIAB in my cheap-o 10 gallon stainless kettle recently. Brewed outside (80*F). Sat the kettle (lid on) on two old comforters & wrapped it up with them. Mashed for 60 minutes & lost 3-5*. It was a pretty big grain bill (14 lbs), and I started with ~8 gallons h2o.

Not sure how this will work in the winter time....

I did that too and used tin tape for the flap and around the edges.
