1) Why not add the grains ~10 deg below the mashing temp and heat to the mash temp, easier to achieve the right temp and waymore easier.

2) No mash out?...

In regards to the OP's insulation, your mash will hold a more constant temp if you also insulate the the top. You really want to make a sort of tea cozy or an over sized Toque.
