Am I misreading what you are saying? Or am I just way off base on how this all works?
The mash remains at a temperature conducive to conversion. Adding hot water to bring the mash up to 168 degrees, stops the conversion process. As previously mentioned, it's not a necessary step with highly modified malts that we can get now.

I didn't mean to confuse you, I just wasn't sure if you were planning to mashout or not. You can do it either way. Personally I never mashed out until I got my HERMS system. It was more complicated for me to have a small pot of boiling water and then another pot with 168 deg sparge water. Either way you want to do it will make good beer. You can do a search for mash out here on the forums. If you look at post 13 on the following post will explain mash out. http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f36/batc...yea-nay-43069/ Again alot of people don't mashout its kind of what works for you. Either way RDWHAHB.
