you are going to be really tired... Personally I would convert the keg one day as this could take longer thank you anticipate... and then do a double brew another day...

I am doing a double brew day tomorrow... so I know how it goes for sure.. And i've done quadruple brew days before... If you are able to mash while boiling/chilling/transfering thats your best bet...

I had to kettles to brew in but only 1MT so I heated all my water in one, and mashed then repeated and while I was boiling/chilling i went and started the water for the mash... once I was able to mash i did so and then if my first runnings were scheduled to come out before I was done with the primary kettle i would either continue mashing or reserve the liquid in my aluminum cooker pot and did my mash out for 10-15 minutes... By then I had transfered and was able to throw my wort into the BK...

Converting the Keg is a Pre-Brew Day Goal.

I planned on mashing the the second batch while boiling the first.
