Anybody here brew ten gallons using a converted keg and boiling for 90 minutes?
I batch sparge and add my first runnings to the boil kettle. I then use two sparges. I add what I can to the boil kettle so I have 13.5 gallons in the kettle and bring it to the boil.
Using what is left for the total, around2.5 gallons, I add that to a second pot and begin heating to boil. I want to add that close to boiling wort as I can to my brew kettle when room is available.
My hop schedule of course is to begin at 60 of the 90 minute boil. But as I add to the kettle, the rolling boil drops off.
How does one compensate for these factors? I am finding my first hop additions are in the kettle much longer than intended.
