Thanks everyone for all the advice. I will definitely try batch sparging next time.

Let me know if I have this right: Batch sparging is great if you want to save time and have enough space in your tun for the extra water.

Fly sparging will allow me to have a larger grain bill given the same size tun, correct? So if I decide to do a big beer I will probably need to switch to a false bottom and take a lot longer to drain the wort?

Has anyone batch sparged a 1.100 imperial stout in a 10 gallon rubbermaid cooler? Would I be ok if I switched to a larger rectangular cooler?

Yeah, you'd be fine in a larger cooler. I've done it many times.

Just wanted to say thanks to Denny and everyone else for their help. I brewed my second AG today and batch sparged. I hit all my numbers perfectly.

I almost forgot to pitch my yeast starter, but that's another story.

Thanks!
