does anyone use the preheat water for the MLT as sparge water?

I figure if I've got 5 gallons of hot water - I'd better use it for something...

I do this. I need to add some more heat to it of course, but that's less wasteful than pouring it out on the driveway.

I overshot the temp when preheating and let the MLT come down to the strike temp then add my grain.

if your using 5 gallons to preheat the MLT then yes it would pay to save it.
