Thanks again. Sorry if these are dumb questions.
No dumb questions here!
Frome here..."Can I mash It" section,
10 lbs of grain and 20 qts ( 5 gal) water yields 5.8 gal mash volume at 2qt/lb mash thickness (20qts/10lbs). So yes you can mash 10 lbs easily.
With a smaller pot you may be pressed to do a full volume BIAB, but you can easily remove the bag and dunk sparge in another pot or a bucket, then combine the runnings in your boil kettle.
While a 10 gallon pot might be better / easier, that pot is worth 15-20 bucks all day long IMHO, cheers!
