Posted in thread: How important is mash temperature, *really*? on 02-05-2016 at 01:32 AM
YFor kicks, I tested the mash from above, rather than the stream out of the spigot. What I
found is that the mash was 148F. I expected there to be some stratification and the heat would

I do it all the time. Works great!

1 piece air locks will not pull in the liquid that is in them if filled up to the proper line.
