You dump your brass in, add the lemi shine and Dawn detergent, a gallon of water and the SS media, set the tumbler in motion, then seperate after 4 hours.
I did 500 pcs of .223. Started the vibratory tumbler on a timer, dumped into the media separator at the end, popped it into a baggy and done. Less than 5 minutes of total work.
No rinsing, no spreading it out on towels, no drying.
I tumbled this on Wednesday evening. I think this is clean enough for my purposes:

I am sincerely happy that you have found an approach that works for you and you are happy with it. I have yet to be sold for my purposes.
Now, if I ever got around to building one of those home-built tumblers that would do about 15 lbs of brass at a time, I might look this over again.
Thumlers makes a 40# model you could probably use to spec one out.
