If you actually brewed like that, you're a dope, and I hope you have decent medical coverage. And why are you using a cooler as a HLT?

I thought most people did this. Personally, I heat my water much higher than needed, dump it in my cooler HLT, then wait/stir until it is at strike temp, then mash in. It works well to hold temp for your strike/sparge water....

So the cooler up top is your mash tun? I used a cooler for a mash tun, but I used a aluminum pot as the HLT, just using a cooler for super hot water will eventually warp it to death.
