Good stuff, thanks

On my system, specially for bigger beers it does make a difference, few months ago i did 1 sparge brewing, had final volumes in BK but just out of curiosity i added 3gal of water to the grains in MT and it was coming out as 1.020og wort, since then for big beers or 10gal batches i double sparge, if i have to sparge with 8gal i do 6gal 1st sparge and 2.5gal 2nd sparge and top of the BK

I can see if you have really thick grist when you sparge that you might want to do two batches, but if you can get to nearly 2qts/lb of grain, I'd think that's rinsing the sugars out effectively.

On that bigger beer how much grain and sparge water were involved in the first batch sparge?
