Recirculating the mash in a traditional mashing setup increases efficiency. It exposes the
grain in the middle to the enzymes much better and BYO just had an article discussing it.I have
no doubt that...

I'm going to go against the above. stir once, thoroughly with a large whisk. Temp loss will
depend on strike temp, mash temp, grain temp, and how much grain your adding. Use a calculator
or do the mat...

My target temperature was 154F - but it held at 160F for pretty much the entire hour. Here's
what I did - I heated the water to 164F, then I poured the grain in and saw the temperature
fall to about 1...

Yea I do biab right now, the lhbs has a barley crusher and I turn the dial as tight as I can

I use a 7.5G pot, am able to do full volume boils and thin mashes up to 3~ qt/lb. I typically
sparge with a gallon to 1.5 depending on the grainbill. Because of this situation, not a big

I've stopped measuring my OG, it's pretty much always 1.050 or at least within 0.005. I'm not
