Default Does anyone parti-gyle?

I am hoping to use this technique in the near future, looking for advice.
If you have done this, how much success did you have?
What beers were produced?
Was it worth it?
Any recipes, tips, suggestions or other feedback welcomed!
Thanks!

Do it! You can make a normal and crazy beer at the same time.

For instance in February I get some local juniper and make a parti-gyle RyePA and Sahti.

You can do a big and session beer, or if you do it right you can get two average strength beers.

Ive done it with success.

IIPA->pale ale or session beer

IIPA->second runnings got some dark LME to make a session brown ale.

These beers are usually for finishing of the hop pellets leftover from a brew that didn't require the full oz. After all, its basically 5 free gallons of beer.

How much added time should I expect on brew day over a standard 5.5 gal batch. Right now I have only 1 burner, so I'll have to split time there. I'm thinking 2 hrs added. Is that reasonable?

Yup that seems reasonable. 30 minutes for the second gyle, hour for the boil, 30 minutes for cooling, racking and pitching.

Could I get 2 5.5 gal batches? Or is that asking too much? Would I likely need to add a couple lbs of base malt for the second beer?

This. I tried it. Ruined both beers. Well not really ruined, but came in way too high on the first runnings and a tad short on the little beer. They were drinkable, but not my best effort. If/when I do it again, I'll double check the grain bill and gravities.

Like it's 1999-gyle! Sorry - couldn't help myself. No. I'm not a fan of big giant beers, but the idea of getting 2 batches from one mash is appealing. I think if I do I'll wind up splitting the first runnings, or maybe just diluting the first batch.
