Im going to be making 11gallons of English Barley Wine and then a partygyl Braggot. Trouble is I can only boil one batch at a time. Should I keep the second runnings in the MLT while maintaining mash temps (RIMS) untill the Barley Wine boil is finished and then sparge again,
Or should I sparge the second runnings into a bucket (while the barley wine is boiling) and boil it when the Barley Wine boil is finished ?
Im concerned that it will keep converting in the bucket as the temps drop (does it matter ?).
What do you you suggest I do ?
i literally just did this 3 days ago. Ran off my first runnings, then while the 1st batch was heating up, collected 2nd runnings into a seperate bucket. Put a lid on it and it sat until the 1st batch was done. No problems this way either.
