When I am by myself, it goes much faster. I brewed last week and it was 3.5 hours. When I have others over, it's at least 5 hours. We are never in a hurry and it is very social.

I do full boils of either extract with steeping or partial mash and 3 hours is usually the max.

That's from start of flame to bucket/Carboy sitting in fermenting room and 95% of my mess cleaned up.

5-6 hrs if I'm doing a single brew. Mostly I do two brews and overlap the boil on the first with the mash on the second, leading to a 7-8hr day.

It depends. If I am doing no-sparge, 60 minute boil, and being efficient, under five hours. If I sparge, do a 90 minute boil, and take my time, it might be as long as eight hours. Sometimes I let the chilled wort settle for as long as 45 minutes, which definitely affects overall time.
