But John Palmer seems to think you should add it all in at one time and then take a single run at the end. Doesn't running the water off affect the strike temps because there is less water? What do you guys suggest? Thanks.
First, I suggest you make sure you really need a step mash. a lot of the time it's unnecessary. Then I suggest you read www.dennybrew.com
for proper batch sparging technique.
