I swear when I use to brew on a simple Sabco Burner and Keggle with an orange cooler mash tun I could knock out a batch in 5-6 hours (memory is foggy as that was a while ago and my brew house notes never mentioned much by way of time of day other than the start time). Years later I'm back at it with a really slick completely plumbed 3 vessel and pumps setup and I'm not sure i can come in much under 8 hours including clean up. While my brew day is easier than ever, it seems like the length of my brew day and cleanup are longer than ever as well. Not complaining mind you, just musing. For giggles, how long are your brew days and what gear are you brewing on?
