About 5-6 hours. I move pretty slow, but try to be efficient.

Typically 5 hours start to finish (AG) I might vary a bit depending on a 60min vs. 90min boil, but 5 hours is usually what I end up with.

Between 5 & 6 hours on a 3bbl commercial setup. This includes grain setup before brewing instead of the night before.

from start to finish, and not a moment longer.
There is a difference between pride and arrogance. Which do you hold in your heart?

I do all grain on a 20 gallon setup and it takes me about 5 or 6 hours. I've become more efficient the more I do it but I'd say 4 to 5 hours is as low as you can get it

Same, 5 hours doing a Robust Porter, but taking my time and spending time roaming around at the Brew supply shop.

AG day as BIAB about 5 hrs depending upon brews drank. 5 gallon brew outside on a banjo burner but again today it was WINDY!!
PS - that high OG LHMS stout clone (3rd batch) makes a difference
Be the person you would want as a friend because at the end of the game the King and Pawn go in the same box.

Roughly four hours for a three gallon no sparge BIAB batch chilled with a plate chiller. Hour mash, hour boil.
I hate Walder Frey...
