Prob a duh moment, but appreciate the help.
Kind of off topic, CharlosCarlies how do you like your B3 system? I ordered one last week. Which system did you get? Any tips to offer after 3 batches?

*nod* you mash until you hit your numbers. It can take 10 minutes, or 90, it all depends.

As for returning the wort to the kettle. Yes, return it to the top. Some rice hulls in the mash will prevent channeling and allow everything to flow without getting stuck.
