I have never had a need to raise temp. Once I hit my strike temp I dough in, add the grains, stir down to my desired temp, pop on the lid and walk away. I mash in my SS brew kettle with no insulation whatsoever.

Are "wilserbrewer" bags scorch proof? More testing may be needed...

Yes, and they come with a limited lifetime warranty.


(Obviously I am kidding, I don't want to take the risk to my bag. I want someone else to try the experiement with their bag )

I'm willing to try this, if you will replace my Wilser bag in case it gets damaged.
Well someone already tried it, and proved it, but your not convinced, why would you believe me lol

I use a basket strainer that I attach my bag to. Just like the Sticky in this "All Grain" forum
