No, I don't recommend that but I don't recommend against it either. If you monitor runoff pH and extract and they are within bounds on the second batch I don't see any reason why you couldn't do it that way but I don't really see any advantage over the more traditional sparging method either. Doesn't mean there may not be some for your particular situation.

I think some people, including myself have gotten better efficiency with this method. If I use the method I reach 70-75 efficiency in my system. If I do the single sparge, I miss my target

You've helped us so much with water chemistry, maybe I can return the favor with a little spreadsheet help?

The programs should be able to read older versions, but I have seen Microsoft screw this up in the past. A couple ideas:

1) Rather than just double-clicking the file, or right-click and 'open', try going to your spreadsheet program and selecting File/Open from the menu of the spreadsheet program, and drill down to where the file is. You might have a problem where the file is not associated with your newer program - this should get around that.

2) Download LibreOffice. This is open source and free, and they will load just about anything (macros can be a problem though).
