When can you fly Sparge?

Channeling should be avoided if you want to achieve the highest extraction rate. During fly sparging the brewer's goal is to match the flow of the water going into the mash tun with the flow of the wort going into the brew kettle. You want the sparge (water flowing over the grains) to take about 60 – 90 minutes.
