I am heating 9.5 gallons to 173F in my HLT. I will then transfer 2.8 gallons of this water to the MLT and let it preheat the tun, and cool to 163F before mashing in.
While the MLT is preheating I will add the remaining 1.5 gallons of water which is at 58F to the remaining 173F water in the HLT, equalizing the temp at 153F, the temp at which I can begin to recirculate my mash through the HERMS coil.(I have a spreadsheet that calculates this) At this time I will rest my JC419 to 153F for the remainder of the mash.

11 gallons water total
Pre-boil volume 7.4
90-min boil
Post-boil volume 5.3

Looks tasty!

Dude, your system is off the hook. I wish I could get it together enough to come up with something like that.

Thanks, it is 3 years of brewing experience and lots of $$. Coolers matched up with HERMS give me some excellent temp control, ability to adjust temp, and superior wort clarity. I love it!

Before I built it I would do an AG brew about once every 6 weeks, now
I average 3/month!
