I have tried both. Couldn't tell a difference. It is a huge debate on this forum. To squeeze or not to squeeze. You will have to decide!

What about all this stuff I hear about "tannins"....I thought squeezing the bag causes these things (Tannins).........I thought squeezing alone was a huge no no......That's not true ?
Not true. You can squeeze as hard as you want and not get tannins. Getting tannins (to any discernible amount) requires high temperature (over 170 is what I hear) and more importantly it requires a pH over 6.0 and the normal mash will be 5.2 to 5.4. The only time you would have to worry is if your water has the mineral content and the grains you mash with have little acidic content (or the minerals to make the mash acidic). My water is like that so I have to add acid blend or acidulated malt to account for it. As long as your pH is acidic enough, you can boil the grains in the mash. We call that decoction and brewers have been doing that for many years, centuries even.

Hey guys, I bottled this up on 3/24 - about 37 bottles. I used the Corn Sugar that came with the kit, but now that I think about it. It's the same 5oz bag that's used for 5 gallons, this batch was 3.5 gallons, Will it be over carbed or is still within range to be ok ??......(I popped 1 bottle after 1 week just to check it's progress, and it went all over the place).........lol

You might have a problem now. Damnit, I was rooting for you in this thread! Make sure your beers are ice cold when you open and store them.

And it never occured to me when I was boiling all that sugar. Why the hell wouldn't they send sugar specifically for the kit they were selling ? 3 gallons, 5 gallons, ...

Or they could have at least noted it somewhere on the package for morons like myself........

The "rule o'thumb" I've seen posted (if you're not carbing to style) is 1oz corn sugar per gallon of beer.

Most certainly do not squeeze because tannins will be released. Patience, let the bags hang.

If you can squeeze hard enough to release tannins, next time I need a hundred ton press I'm calling on you. You can't release tannins by squeezing, you have to have temps over 170 at the same time your pH goes over 6.0. Since your mash is normally 5.2 to 5.8, you can squeeze all you want or bring your mash to a boil without releasing tannins.
