Paging Denny Conn! I believe he has stated that for batch sparging, once the grain bed has set, you are free to drain as fast as your system allows, with speed being a benefit, not a requirement. Although since my modest "system" has only two settings--on and off--speed is a requirement for me.


There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, than are dreamt of in the BJCP's philosophy.

I fly sparge and make 10 gallon batches and usually sparge 80-90 minutes. When I go below 60 mins. my efficiency suffers. I also collect 14.2 Gallons for a 90 minute boil.
