I just did my first partial mash this last weekend. I just used a grain bag and a cooler I had on hand and batched sparged. While not fancy and definitely not as efficient, it definitely works and gets your feet wet without buying a lot of equipment.

I just wrap a spare bucket in a sleeping bag and can get away with using a max of 10.5 lbs of grain. I BIAB then dunk in my BK with enough water to bring me to 6 gals for a full boil. so I can brew anything under about 1.055 all grain and only had to buy paint strainer bags!
