For a few brews now if have tried a style called Brupaks(Brewers Choice Traditional IPA is a dried ingredients beer kit using Tea bag technology. No boiler is required. A wll hopped Pale Ale in the style shipped to India in the 19th Century. a 5 Gallon kit that can be made as a light session beer, medium bodied or full bodied Premium beer.).As this system uses grains and hops in bags and mixed with 6 litres of boiling water, then with a large bag of malt extract(top up to 40pints with cold).
Could i not just replace the hops and grains they supply you with and use different styles in muslin bags?

I don't see any reason why not.
Remember one unassailable statistic, as explained by the late, great George Carlin: "Just think of how stupid the average person is, and then realize half of them are even stupider!"

Absolutely. No matter what style of beer you brew, as an extract brewer you will find the need for bags both for your steeping grains and hops. It doesn't matter if you're brewing a light blonde ale or a rich barleywine, you will want those bags.

I presume you are relatively new to the hobby? I welcome you.
