I tried for the first time using the BIAB method and ran into a big problem with the mashing bag.
I placed all the ingredients (9lbs of different grains) in the mashing bag without thinking of the weight problem/absorption.
I was unable to remove the bag from the pot - it was just too heavy and it had absorbed 3/4 of the wart (5 gallons).
What did I do wrong? Is my mashing bag too fine? Was I suppose to mash small amounts of grain instead of all at the same time?
