Ok- I had not thought about going this route (using a fixed water temp and a variable water volume). I had been assuming a fixed water volume after hearing that your mash water and sparge volumes should be as close to equal as possible.
*Edit- After trying to do this, I'm not able to adjust the temperature of the infusion, only the desired temp, volume, water/grain ratio, etc. Is this something that can be changed?
