Seriously? That's insane!

I know this is in the extract forum, but I saw this and had to comment. We had a similar thread in the AG forum recently.

Anyway, a 5 gal AG batch takes me 3.5-4 hrs. I brewed 2 AG batches back-to-back yesterday morning and it only took 5 hrs 20 mins. I posted a detailed schedule of activities. back-to-back brewing

Take a look and see where you can shave some time. 7-8 hrs for AG might put an end to this hobby for me.
