Batch Sparging

Hi
Does anybody have experience with batch sparging and if so how do you setup beer smith for this process. I am looking at doing 43 litre batches and it seems that batch sparging may be the simpler way to go, any suggestions.
Regards
Andrew

Hi,
 You can find an article about batch sparging here:

  http://beersmith.com/batch_sparging.htm

 As for using it with BeerSmith - there really is nothing you need to do different except adjust the brewhouse efficiency a few percent down because most brewers lose a few percent efficiency on batch sparging versus regular sparging.

 Many batch spargers also skip the mash-out step (for ease) - in this case just use the mash profiles with "no mash out" at the end of their names.

Cheers!
Brad
