When batch sparging, do you hold the sparge liquid there in the mash tun for a few minutes before draining? Or do you drain as soon as it gets in there?

I usually let mine sit 10-15 minutes while I'm working on something.

Basically - pour sparge water in, stir like crazy, let the bed settle, drain.

Pour water in, stir real good, let sit for 10 min, then stir again, then being runnings. At least thats how I do it.

I've tried waiting after a good stir but it was just lengthening my brewday with no rise in efficiency. I stir for about 3 minutes then start vorlaufing.

I stir for 2 - 3 minutes, then drain. No pause.

This is done after the first runnings are collected correct?
