Before mash-in I heat my strike water in the sanke MLT. This heats up in the MLT steel and wool insulation and is an absolutely required step to maintain stable mash temps. After mash-in, it takes...

You don't necessarily need a pump and a heater. A SS kettle with false bottom can easily be direct fired to maintain mash temperatures. I find that I only have to fire my Sanke MLT, which is...
