Do you guys ever compensate for the temp drop? Say if it drops 2 degrees, mash in a degree higher than your goal so the average temp is at your rest temp?
No I don't but once I hit my target temp it doesn't drop. If it did I would try wrappng it in towels or keeping it in a warmer spot or something. 2 degrees isn't a heck of a lot though really. With grain you probably won't see any drop worth noting.
