Does any have any input on double brew days? If you've done one what problems did you run into? What made it go smoothly?

Any thoughts?

you are going to be really tired... Personally I would convert the keg one day as this could take longer thank you anticipate... and then do a double brew another day...

I am doing a double brew day tomorrow... so I know how it goes for sure.. And i've done quadruple brew days before... If you are able to mash while boiling/chilling/transfering thats your best bet...

I had to kettles to brew in but only 1MT so I heated all my water in one, and mashed then repeated and while I was boiling/chilling i went and started the water for the mash... once I was able to mash i did so and then if my first runnings were scheduled to come out before I was done with the primary kettle i would either continue mashing or reserve the liquid in my aluminum cooker pot and did my mash out for 10-15 minutes... By then I had transfered and was able to throw my wort into the BK...

Converting the Keg is a Pre-Brew Day Goal.

I planned on mashing the the second batch while boiling the first.
