    Hi Ross. I do 25 lt batches and I have found that in completely draining (or as completely as possible) my mash tun that I can get around an extra 2lts of 1st runnings wert into my kettle. To then get the full boil volume required I find now that the single batch sparge can be less in volume...

    Double Batch Sparge

    2012 Sydney Pub Crawl

    Had a great day at Murray's Manly a short time back. Fantastic setup and the staff were very friendly and really knew the beer. They open at 11am every day, which may put a dent in the schedule. The normal ferry runs from Circular Quay every 20 minutes on the hour (well they did on week days...
