For my mash ,I picked single infusion no mash out. My mash steps call for fly sparge. I don't do fly sparge. My set up is a 10 gallon igloo cooler. I just heat up my sparge water to get my grain temperature up to 152 degrees. Should I use all my heated water all at once? How can I get the program to not show fly sparge?

Edit the mash profile you are using and under 'batch sparge options' click the box which reads 'Batch Sparge with batches that fill" to let the program know you are not fly sparging.  I would also recommend that you click on the box which reads 'drain mash tun before sparging' otherwise the program will divide up your sparge water to fill the mash tun before signaling the drainage step.

If you are doing a full volume BIAB, then check the box below that which reads 'BIAB mash with full boil/ and the program will apply all your mash water to the initial mash infusion.
