been mashing for about 45 mins, temp settled at 147 in a 10 gallon mash tun cooler. Is this going to be too low? Iodine test shows no color change. Will this turn out OK. First time mashing in many years. Any help is greatly appreciateed

I think you can mash as low as 146? Seems to me it would be fine. What about adding some boiling water to bring the temp up to your desired?
