    Let me clarify: I put 14.5 gallons in my mash tun, heated it to 164 degrees (or thereabouts,
    don't have my notes), and mashed in. My HLT was at 152, recirculating the water. Upon starting
    recirc, my T...

    Is your mash tun insulated?

    I'm recirculating fill bore with a chugger pump, and the temp is at the inlet to the mash tun,
    at the wort return

    Ok, that's where I had it... I guess it just wasn't enough heat output to account for the loss.

    I was full bore with the pumps, pots are stainless. I thought that because of the large thermal
    mass, that they would only be trying to drop a few degrees over the hour... Higher volume to
    surface are...

    Hi Homebrewtalk! I did my first brew on my HERMS system on Saturday, and I have an issue that
    I've been pondering. I used a ToP to sense the temperature of the sweet wort returning to the
    mash tun. I ...

    Well, I came in low... 70% efficiency instead of a planned 80%. I don't think that's too bad. I
    let the mash go for 90 minutes, and then fly sparged. This was my first herms, first 20 gallon
    on a bran...

    Help! I'm mashing right now, 55 minute in. The ToP is reading 153 on the return... Spot on, but
    my mash temp seems to be 140 at my 2"thermowell. I didn't calibrate my analog :(. Do I trust
    the ToP? My...

    Thanks so much for the info! I'm setting up tonight, for what I'm calling the fourth of
    brew-ly! I can't wait to try it, I can't imagine it not working. I'll just have to tinker with
    flow rates, as yo...
