For BIAB? Or as a mash filter?

Mash filter with false bottom. (For easy grain removal)

I gain efficiency with that setup. I recirculate though.

Strange.. I recirc as well. I have 2 different tuns of 2 different sizes and both get better extraction without a bag.

I use a bag sized for my small mash tun by wilserbrewer.

I think mine are by brewbag. All l can figure is that it recirc's down the bag instead of through the grains. The malt is conditioned and not compacted during mashing. So beats me
