This is a good point. I have measured different areas of the mash bed and it does vary quite a bit. I just built a PID controller though so i can recirculate while mashing for more stable and even temps. so i will try it again with this in place next time.

Well, interesting! I brewed this exactly a week ago. I pitched at 64 degrees and rose the temp 1 degree a day and ended at 68 degrees. I checked my gravity and I am at 1.008! I mashed at 152-153 also. I think the sugar just may be the issue here.
