According to BA I just add all 7 grams to strike water and am then done with my salts...
Well, if you do it this way your strike water will have too much salts, and your sparge water won't have enough. I generally make about 10 gallons of water to my chosen profile, and mash in at about 1.5 quarts per pound of grain. I gauge my sparge addition (batch sparge) based on the volume and gravity of the initial runnoff. I typically don't use the entire 10 gallons, but only waste a gallon or two depending on the grain bill. Just putting all the salts in with the initial infusion could potentially put that water way outside your parameters and effect mash PH and efficiency, as well as flavor...
