In order to simplify the brewday at BJs, John's original 3 hour boil was elminated. In it's place, John and Martin Carman setup a pair of pots and boiled a full barrel of the first runnings down to about a half barrel of concentrated syrupy runnings. These caramelized runnings were then added back into the main boil.
