Aint that the truth! My brewdays always go much faster when I have my HLT full with filtered water, grains crushed, and hops weighed and put in baggies labeled with each time addition the night before. Also gives me an excuse to spend more time putzin in the garage/brewery.
Most Ive done is two 10 gallon AG batches. Took from about 7AM till about 4:30 PM. Logistics were an issue because I am all electric with the capability of only firing one pot at a time. I used a separate propane burner to heat strike water while the first batch was boiling.
I have also done one all grain batch and two extract batches at the same time on a separate burner before, but that was with some helpers/other brewers.
