Does anyone know the negative effects on dilution the wort with water when
doing a Batch Sparge. As opposed to a pure No-Sparge.

I plan to try the Batch sparge this weekend, but since I want 12 gal wort
post boil and system limitations, I need to collect 6 gal high gravity wort
and dilute with 8 gal water. More than 50% Is this OK?

Yeah, that's what I did when I stared batch sparging, since my kettle
wasn't big enough.  Be forewarned, you'll take a big hit on efficiency
since you can't get as much water through the grain to rinse out all the
sugar.  After doing it that way a few times, I broke down and got a
bigger kettle.

For more info about batch sparging, check out  It's a pre-edit article I wrote that's
in the Jan. issue of BYO.  There's info on the website that was left out
of the article.
