I must be the odd guy, my tun is set up to fill from the bottom. I mill the grain into the tun then open the valve on the HLT to add the water. (The tun does have a false bottom.) Usually by the time half the water is in the tun the grain bed is starting to lift or float.

I have had better luck in hitting my strike temps with grain to water. I am not sure why ,maybe someone can enlighten us on the thermal dynamics of both.
