I'm in the 4hr range for a 10 gallon AG batch from mill to clean up. When I did BIAB I was consistently 3.5 hrs start to finish, I've had 1 8 hour brew day/night, I found out propane freezes under 30 degrees and was trying for a double 10 gallon brew day I think if I had realized the propane issue sooner I could have shaved off 2hrs easily.

7 hours for 15 gal batch start to clean up. Use a Pico system and 2 guy set up. Have had them last 10 because of stuck mash...

The fastest brew day I had was just over 4 hours. It was a hefeweizen that turned out nasty! (go figure) I ended up dumping it...

Most of my batches take 5-6 hours as well.

5 to 6 here too, but usually includes either a racking to secondary, bottling, or kegging now as well as a brew session.

It pretty much takes me 5 to 6 hrs each time. 90 minute boils seem to take a good chunk of that time.

I started heating my strike water at 4:30 pm and pitched my yeast around 10:15 pm. I did have a 75 min mash and two sparges that were longer than I planned because I was talking to neighbors.
