The surrounding water was 170 but the inside of the grain was 155-160.
oh, the temperature of the water doesn't matter at all. It's the temperature of the mash that you monitor. I thought that is what we were talking about.

What do you mean by grain bubble? The grain should be absolutely thoroughly soaked through. If in a grain bag, it should be very loose in the bag, not packed at all, so the water can move through it.
