kids will be gone, jobs are ticked off-ish, so a free weekend :D. My question for you brewers is, when it comes to mash out time & 76-78*C is reached, is it best to remove the bag o grains straight away or hold off for X amount of minutes. The reading I've done can be conflicting, some don't say while others suggest up to 15min?. Whats the general consensus, cheers.

Hey David, I have just done my 2nd BIAB now and didn't use a mash out.
I wasn't planning on sparging either, but after losing 1-2 litres from the pot being too full when I put my lid on (AGAIN, I thought I had reduced my totals enough so it wouldn't happen this time!), I "sparged" with 2 litres of 77C. Ended up 4 points over on my pre-boil estimate gravity reading but bang on for my OG.
I will have to look into sparging next time as it will allow my to have a slightly reduced volume when mashing.
