After I collect my first runnings I throw in the hops and get the wort moving up toward boil. Then I'll batch sparge and add these second runnings to the boil kettle with the FWHs and keep it cranking toward boil.
This is exactly what I do, too! Love it!

Wait. You're not talking about beer, right?
You're talking about beer. That could have been a whole lot more fun.
