Mash Profile help
« on: February 27, 2012, 08:04:57 PM »
I have a 10 Gal plastic (Home Depot) cooler that I use for my Mash Tun. I’ve only done the single mash in at 150ish and the mash out at 168ish. Whenever I select it, it always has Fly Sparging step in there. I don’t do that, I’ll Mash In get all the water and put the Mash out water in and mix up the grains...I’m not sure what that’s called? But then I draw THAT water and that’s it.
Is there a particular Mash Profile I should use for that? I’ve been off on my water every time so far...

I guess, I'm the only guy that's having this issue?

Sounds like batch sparging to me.  Try that profile and select drain mash run.  Probably can  delete mash out step too.

Thank-you...I think that was it! It has two amounts of water (using Medium), but I’ll just add the two amounts together.....

It does that based on how full the mash tun % is.  It also uses "equal sparge volume" check box.  You should be able to configure that profile to your needs so it only displays one volume of sparge water.
