Shortest was probably around 4 hours, prep included. Stovepop BIAB.

Longest was probably over 8 hours... maaaan, that was a PITA brewday.

6 to 7 hours for an 11-gallon "biab". I usually undertake racking
the primary into 2 cornies to make room for the brew day brew.

3.5-4 hours, batch sparging with a cooler MLT and cooling with an IC or CFC depending on ground water temps. That's assuming a 60 minute mash and 60 minute boil.

My first AG batch was 7 hours, but 2 hours of that was putting out the fire I had started on the stove top and getting production moved outside.

Expecting 5 hours for the next one.

I average just under 5 hours for an AG batch. My last batch was 7.5 hours for a triple decoction pilsner.

Crush to fermenter... no shortcuts, ever. Depends on outdoor temperature for big batches. 90 min mash, 20 min recirculate, 15 min whirlpool, etc.

2 gallon batch - 4 hours
10 gallon batch - 6 hours
50 gallon batch (precrushed the night before...) - 7 hours.

LOL..I see the times are creeping into the 3 hour range at this point. LOL...do you guys do 30 minute mashes, no recirc/vourlauf, no sparge, 40 minute boils, no chill and clean as you go?

I bet your beer only costs .19/pint too?

LOL...just bustin' balls guys/gals. If you can brew that fast good on ya. So long as we're all brewing, that's all that matters!
