It only took a year and 40+ extract batches but I've finally streamlined my brew day. I just did two different 5-gallon batches (4+gallon boils) in my apartment, on my electric stove in 4 hours flat start to finish! Everything is cleaned dried and put away. No messes on the floor or anything. So relaxed the entire time too. Its second nature now.
So much easier to start getting in the habit of 10 gal every other weekend now. Hope everyone else had a successful brew day today too.
