Grouting large tile

I'm thinking of using some larger tile (16 or 24) in my own bathroom first since I have never laid anything this large. Can I use one of those bags with a spout on it for grouting to save time and mess during grouting? Sorry for the incorrect term for the tool. Please enlighten me on this subject in both method and tools. Thanks in advance for the help.

Just use your regular method and just do the joints. I haven't found the bag to be faster.

Kevin, bag won't be any faster. I would actually think it would be slower athough it may be minimally cleaner. Just do it normal.
