Why when talking about taking the PH of the mash, no one ever mentions at mash temp or at room temp?

Actually, that has been a FAQ for as long as I've been hanging out here...

Cheers! :)

I think maybe it's just assumed that room temp is the correct and accepted way to measure pH in brewing.

Great, thanks for the input. I had assumed it was at room temp, like most things in home-brewing, but seems like no one really specifies that.
