Since I do all my brewing inside, I use a 2 pot method for my boil, and with just one cooler for my mash tun, I do a batch sparge. All-grain brew day took me 5 hours from start to finish (including cleaning.)
To the right, you'll see my set up with the batch sparge in action. Below, You may notice a hop bag with 1/3 pound of Nugget hops in the mash tun. Just another way to try and get the most out of the hops.
Below is a picture of me (left) and my brother in-law (right,) Chad. He started home brewing a few years before me, and had a huge influence on me and my love of great beer.
