Then I heat my sparge water, measure out my hops, and clean out a bucket/carboy during a standard 60 minute mash.
Runoff, sparge and bringing wort to a boil takes another 30 minutes.
Do a standard 90 minute boil.
Chilling, transfering to bucket, carrying into the house and into the basement, taking a gravity reading, oxygenating and pitching yeast takes 30 minutes.
Then another 30 minutes to clean everything up nice and put it all away.
That's 4 hours, plus a few minutes here and there.
