I'm brewing an IPA tonight, and it calls for mash hops (which I've never done,) but many people using the recipe say they throw the hops in as FWH addition. Now, since we're "teabag sparging" in a separate pot, to which pot would I add the hops and when? Into the sparge pot when I add my bag of grain to let it sit for 10 mins, or into the hot wort in the mash tun from which I just pulled the grain, where I will eventually pour the sparged wort into for the boil?

My wort is chilling in my deep sink right now!

I tend to over analyze and make things entirely more complicated then they have to be, so naturally something that if you want it to be can be extremely complicated such as brewing I was getting my self all stressed out over my 1st PM/BIAB.

This tutorial is perfect for my setup or any set up coming from extract, all you need is a bag. Thanks much for making something that in books looks complicated absurdly easy, because of this my 1st PM/BIAB went real well, everything looks spot on!!

So stoked for what doors in brewing opened up now that I know how east BIAB is

I love the nylon paint strainer bags. Rolls over the lip of the kettle to allow stiring the grains & washes out quick-n-easy.

that's how I did my first batch, I also filled up some water bottles the night before and let them freeze for the cool down.

Adding my thanks here as well. I've been doing AG BIAB for the last six batches since I read this guide... I've only done two partial mashes, but without this guide I might not have realized how simple mashing could be.

Just did my first partial and used this method. It worked perfectly! Not totally sure what my efficiency was, but everything worked great.

This was hugely helpful and has taken all the fear out of breaking the extract barrier for me. Thank you!
