How much grain in 5 gallon paint strainer?

Recommended Posts

I've been doing biab for awhile now. I normally do 4 gallon batches and use around 10# of grain. I'm working on a recipe that is a little over 12#s. Has anyone used this much or more in a 5 gallon paint strainer?

Yep, works just fine. I've done BIAB batches with up to 15 pounds using a 5-gallon paint strainer bag.

Just finished doing a 12# with a nylon bag. Was nervous pulling it out after the mash, but it held up just fine.

Just be careful not to burn or scorch the bag.  Some folks on another forum had a discussion about that recently and many mentioned the painter bags gave way after they weren't careful and burned them.  Just common sense but shyte happens.
