Same for me, about four hours from setup to clean up.

I assume you guys have propane burners? If I'm running all-grain, working with my stovetop I end up @ 6-7 hours from start to finish.

I am NEVER that efficient! I'm usually at 6 or more...if I'm brewing outside it's hauling out my rig and then clean up that gets me. If I'm brewing inside it's the longer boil & chilling time that gets me. I'm sure I could get it lower if I was very focused and organized, but alas, I'm not very focused and organized!

Same here. Got it for $50 with free shipping to the store from Ace! Great burner. I have since cannibalized it to put the burner into my stand, but I'm about to put it back and install another burner on the stand.

I use to try to get done as fast as possible and was probably around 4hrs but now I would rather be lazy and now it takes me better part of the day. I weigh grain then chill then weigh hops and chill then measure water and chill and so on and so fourth till I finally finish lol!

Between 4-5 hrs, All Grain on stove top. The key is to keep busy during any down time, I wash and sanitize everything as soon as I'm finished using it.
