If you're taking the sample for the purpose of knowing when to halt your runnings you need to know immediately. That's the reason I'm going to be getting a refractometer, instant readings and you only need a drop or two of wort. If you're batch sparging it's really not an issue at all. Just run out to your boil amount and be done. Your sparge water isn't in contact with the grains long enough to extract tannins.

If you miss your target gravity you may want to adjust or sparge more

Now I understand. Figured you just adjust at end of boil and cooling like w/extract brews.
