Well, I really meant to quote, not to advise. I don't stir like crazy, because I am not chasing
efficiency, so I don't think I would have run into HSA in the mash.I never thought of the

I agree. All this talk of HSA and most procedures will be sloppy in this concern anyway. Almost
all advice given to people with low efficiency posts suggest adding the sparge water then Stir
