mash tun weight

What exactly is the mash tun weight and how does this affect mash temp & adjusting the temp with infusion?

Is it just the actual weight of the mash tun vessel?

Yes, actual tun weight.  I'm not sure exactly all that this measurement impacts but know it affects strike water temperature.

Primary: Lambic base for solera barrel
Kegged: Bavarian Weissbier, N. English brown, Roggenbier
