Default Ale Pail - How Hot?

How hot a liquid can I safely put in an ale pail?

Is 170* too hot?

Nope, not too hot. I use mine for an HLT with 180 degree water all the time.

Man, I've seen a crazy video of someone using a bucket to boil in with an electric heating element. It's insane.

Great!

I want to collect my mash and sparges together to get my gravity and want to know my volume, too.

The gallon marks on the pail will make that easier and since I am still doing PM until I get my efficiency up, the pail is big enough.

I'm still hitting around 55-60% and am working on finding out why.

That's right, I had forgot about those boil buckets. This should not be an issue.
