I generally have drained the tun by the end. I always make up more sparge water than I need, but often have gauged the volume so it ends up essentially dry so I have less to carry to the compost bin.
Same here. Once in a while I'll come up a little short on volume but my refractometer tells me if I still have sugars in the runoff or if I can just top off with water. But if I need to I still have sparge water hot because I fill my converted keg HLT all the way so I have hot cleaning water.
