Attempting my second batch doing all grain and I have a question on my set up. I put together a brew stand(janky but should work). Is there a rule of thumb for the distance between the HLT and mash tun? I ask because they are real close. Using two igloos with a spare arm.

Thanks!

It doesn't matter. Whatever works. If you're using gravity, as long as the MLT is lower than the HLT the distance doesn't matter.
