I'm not sure what your target mash temp was, but 154 should be fine for a medium bodied beer. If you find this...

If all that kraussen isn't producing airlock activity then i think that you don't have a well sealed bucket. It doesn't really matter as long as it is generally left undisturbed.

Bottom-up reciculation

I'd like to stir up some discussion about the idea of reverse or bottom-up reciculation. This could also apply to fresh, hot sparge water flushing.

Put a multimeter across the terminals on that motor to see the coil resistance. What's the voltage of it? Divide voltage by coil resistance and you get your "stall current". A DC power supply to...
