45 min for a 10 gallon batch. I do a mash out.Someday I need to get the blue cooler and see how much time it saves. Right now I fly sparge for about 45 minutes, but my wort is at or near a boil when I am done with the sparge. While you drain fast and have to wait for the wort to come to a boil, right?
I start heating as soon as I have started collecting the first runnings. But since the whole process of collecting both runnings takes me only about 15 min., there's still some time after I'm dome while I'm waiting for it to boil. So, maybe another 10-15 min.? Your point is well taken, though, Jeff. When I talk about time savings it would be best to specify just where the time saving is. If you're ever in the area on one of your trips, I'd love to have you come by for a brew and see for yourself!
Jeff, you are sparging for 45 minutes (5 gal) and Denny am I calculating about 30 minutes for your sparing? Do either of you do a mash-out?
Denny, be careful, we are talking of getting out to see our friends that live in Bend again someday! See you in Philly.
One more thing, we have been playing with a sort of no sparge. Mash a little thin at 2 qts/lb. Mash out and add 168-170F water to top the mash tun out. Drain as fast as I can with the single tier + pump system. Might add a little water to make the total volume needed. Saves a few minutes, only a pont or 2 hit on efficiency, no astringency this way (I used to oversparge).
It looks pretty normal to me. I have a batch now and then that will settle out like that. If it is 4 inches thick you may want to think about going to a secondary with it just to let what you will transfer settle out.
Im gonna transfer tonight into secondary so I'll let y'all know how t goes. Appreciate everyone's replies

I tried that using images from photobucket but they still didn't show. What did I do wrong?
Don't forget to include the effects of 600 TV networks and 100s, if not 1000s of radio stations, being available. Most of which aren't worth a damn but the simple idea that we don't have a "common American experience" anymore is driving quite a bit of change in our society. Back in the day when we had 3 TV channels and 9 or 10 AM stations to choose from your peer group all had the same experience. Some of that still happens but you see it less and less. Basically, no social pressure to conform allows you to choose what you want. In our case that is beer and food with flavor.
Craft beer will continue to grow but its growth patterns will drift.
No jokes this morning, sorry still waking up.
I am sure I am over simplifying this, but what I don't understand
I look at the water profile adjustment tab in Bru'n Water
Select 100% R/O water.
Set the "Desired Water Profile" as Burton
Then I am supposed to input different mineral additions to hit that profile?
I am sure someone has done this already?
So just tell me what to add to hit that profile?
So drying out hoses seems to be the bane of my freaking existence. how do people handle this? every time we let them dry they seem to come out with spots on the inside of the house etc, which i can only assume is not very good. We have a bottle cleaner that has a nipple that fits into hoses so we manage to get high pressure into our hoses and we sanitize the hell out of them, its just getting them dry in the end.
