Default Mash with a muslin bag

When I am in the mash step and I add my grain that's in the muslin bag to the water and I check the temperature should the grain be at the 150-160 degree range or should the liquid be around 150-160? I assume the grain should or both. Any help would be amazing.

You want to account for some loss of heat when you add your mash water. Depending on what setup you have you adjust the water temp to account for this loss. I know that I will lose 4-5 degrees when I add water (took me a few batches to standardize that figure). So if I want to mash at 150, I get my water to 155.

Hope this helps.

You try to hold the mash temp (that's water & grains) to the temp specified in the recipe.
