Thanks for the info.

I don't think you need those things to make a great beer but they don't hurt. And yes 15 min should be good. Just make sure it is a rolling boil. I feel the biggest advantage of the boil is getting rid of the DMS (cooked corn)(I think it tastes like canned tomatoes) off notes.

Terry,
Thanks for the input. I knew I wasn't the only one who thought of doing this.

I used Beersmith to tweak the recipes. Both came out quite tasty.
Did you bring both additions to a boil, or just the California Common one?

I brought both to a boil, but for different times. The IPA hop tea was boiled for 60 mins with Chinook to boost the IBUs, then added cascades at 15-min and 0-min for the flavoring and aroma. After steeping the crystal for coloring the Cal-Common, I did a 15-min boil for the flavor and aroma with Northern Brewer.

Go for it.

Take a look at this thread, or just my post over there. Short version -- Sept/Oct 2010 Zymurgy had a long article on multiple ways to get 2+ batches from one brew day.
