I do what a lot of people around here do. I go about 10-12 above strike temp and let it heat the tun for about 10 minutes prior to adding grain. I'll stir to get my actual strike temp if I'm high...

kpr121 definitely summed it up well.

I'd 100% concur about the pump when migrating to 10G batches. If you have manual moving processes in use now, you'll find those same efforts are exceptionally...

I think those will be just fine. At a melting point between 400-450 degrees, you'd be pumping aerosolized gas before you had any problems. I couldn't find any particular food safety info on the...

I'd concur. I've brewed quite a few batches from the recipe forums and always made the assumption of US gallons. All of them have turned out well, with some having notes for tweaking.
