Sparge water level:

I got no responses to my inquiry about sparge water level in the
grain bed. Perhaps you all-grain brewers will send me mail indicating
whether your sparge water level is above or below the top of the
grain bed..also, if you have any reasons why you choose that method.
I'll post a summary of the responses I receive.

Sparge water amount:

I'm planning a brew using 15lbs of pale malt. Using 1 qt/lb of grain,
I'll be using 4 gallons of water in the mash. Do I still sparge with
5 gallons? Less? More?
