Hmmmm..... real good question. My Achilles heel is forgetting to take the OG before pitching yeast. I was thinking about it the whole time during this batch, talked about it, and forgot. Damn.

Home Depot, I believe... Just regular work gloves coated with PVC. They don't hold up to extreme temps - I got them melty once - but they're good for taking your kettle off the heat or reaching in for a hop bag (got them mainly to be waterproof).

Awesome... Keep in mind that I shorted the grain bill a bit... Should be 9 lbs of 2-row as per Sparky...

About 52 hours out and this thing is done. Krausen fell, and the bubbling is slow. It's late and I just played hockey, so I will take a gravity and have a taste tomorrow night.

I can't believe I didn't think to do this!! Is this common among other batch spargers? This HAS to decrease the amount of time it takes to come to a boil by quite a bit!

On my first AG, I waited until I had both runnings before starting the boil, and it TOOK FOREVER!!

Are there any negative effects to doing it this way e.g. boil off from first runnings affecting the total pre-boil volume? Would you be boiling off more of the first runnings this way, as opposed to boiling off the total amount of water including the sparged (2nd) runnings.

Sorry if this has been covered before. I'm quite new to all this.
