I was thinking about this last night and wondered if anyone had ever tried it. Let's say you are brewing 2 batches in 1 day. You complete the 1st batch and rack to primary. Instead of cleaning out the brew kettle (trub, hops, etc...) you add the newly mashed wort directly to it and brew as normal. Any thoughts?

Sounds like laziness and a good way screw up the IBU's of your 2nd beer...

It would defintely be lazy. I just wondered what would happen. If the hops from the original brew had been boiling for an hour, 30 min and 15 min or 5 min, do you think they would make that big of a difference in the new brew?

I think you could expect to extract some IBU's that weren't planned on from them. I also think you could probably count on some weird flavors from the vegetative mass from the hops, and the break material. It wouldn't be noticeable in a bigger/maltier/hoppy beer, but in anything light I bet you'd pick it up pretty quickly.

I wouldn't do it, just a quick rinse with the hose would take care of the mess before boiling your second batch.

I have no plans to do it, it was just one of the many many thoughts that popped into my head last night while drinking!

Don't know if it would hurt anything but why take the chance?

I'd at least do a quick scrub and rinse with the hose to try to get the majority of any residue from the previous batch outta there. I do this and it takes about 2-minutes.

Also make sure to flush out any spigots, etc., where stuff can be hiding.

I only do a quick hose out and then move onto the next brew. No need to be super clean...

I think you need to find a drinking partner.
