don't listen to me though - I've only done 1 AG batch myself. But everything I've read and heard is you want that sparge temp high enough to get the grain bed temp up to 160ish, and the hotter the water, the more soluable the suges --> hence easier to pass through the grain bed during your drain..errrr...I mean lauter.

You want to keep your grain bed over 160 but under 170 during sparge. 180 usually does it for me.
