Did my first 10 gal batch today!
I have been doing 5 gal AG for the past couple of years, but this is my first double batch.
I hit 78.5% with a batch sparge!
My OG was just a tad higher than planned, but still very close.
1.052 vs 1.050
I split the batch into 2 better bottles.
One got Nottingham yeast, and the other got Safale S-05
Should be interesting to compare the two.
From start to finish 4.5 hours! I just cut my brewing time in half!
