Mashing grains right now. Beersmith told me to stoke with 166 degree water to hit a 152, which was right on. It's telling me to sparge with 186 degrees, which seems a bit high to me. Any input?

not enough info. What is your strike and sparge volume and what is your grain bill?

That first sparge is going to take it up to about ~162 and the second sparge to ~172. Sounds about right to me. Maybe a little high.
