What my Smoke Ring friend dfess1 is referring to can be termed "parti gyle" brewing. Old technique, still has legs...

Cheers!

yes, thats it exactally how I do it. Granted I do single infusion mashes and batch sparges so I don't use a herms coil (not yet anyway). Sanitizing is as easy as leaving some boiling water in the BK and circulating it through the pump. I suppose you could use the boiling wort too. we just always used water from the BK

Sorry to the OP, I don't want to hijack the thread. We could take it to a new thread or PM if need be.

Thanks!
Recently I brewed a clone of Stone 15th Anniv DBIPA, a RIS, Barleywine. They all had a huge grainbill, and were only 5 gal batches. I'm using 15 gal pots for HLT, MLT, BK. So I over fill my HLT, use what I need to sparge with, and wait to collect my volumn for the initial beer. Then i throw in leftover water from the HLT, let it sit for another 20 min or so (recirc throughout this phase, as well as my initial mash), and then collect back into my HLT. The "small" beer off my RIS still hit 1.050, and the RIS his 1.100 on it's own. I look at it as a "free" beer, so i throw in whatever I have in the fridge for hops and yeast, or other adjuncts. The second beer is about a quarter to half way through the boil by the time the first one is done. Two beers in a slightly elongated brew day, but no where near as long if I was doing two completely different beers.

Apologies OP. I really didn't want to hijack. FWIW I agree with Schnitzengiggle. My vote is #1.
