Thanks guys. I have no valves on my kettles yet, so I'm just dumping 4 gallons right in the cooler with a single sparge. I guess I could split the sparge up to help with foaming (would make for a gentler pour), but it sounds like I shouldn't really worry about it.

Why not double batch sparge? That's what I do. Personally I feel it would be more efficient than a single, but I've never done a single so I may be wrong.

Based on my experience, you're wrong. The only time I do more than one sparge addiditon is if I'm using so much graiI can't fit all the water in at once. I average 85% with a single sparge.

I use a 1/2 gal. pitcher to add water so I don't have to pour it all in at once.

Good to know I'm wrong, thanks Denny. Next time I brew I will try a single batch sparge and see the outcome. I would certainly prefer one sparge than two. Unfortunately I won't be able to report back until September as I just finished my last brew of the season today. I take a break once the weather gets warmer here since the temps in the house start getting a bit too warm to ferment at a nice cooler temp. Plus, it gives me time to concentrate on my music - will finally get my second album done

I think we're getting wrapped around the axle on a part of a sentence in an article on sparging.

Best of luck with the album! Having been in the music biz for over 45 years, I know how tough it is.
