Ha! Don't worry, I decanted. Brew day went well. I hit all my temps. No real surprises. A good day.

BTW Denny this was my first time using your cheap n' easy mash tun. Also my first batch sparge. It worked very well. I used one of those Coleman extreme coolers (blue, of course) and only lost 3*F in a garage that was 30*F. Mashed in at 154* and wound up at 151* after 75 minutes.

Cool!  (pun intended!)

Only losing 3 degrees over a mash time is great - I love that about coolers, but knowing to use a blue one - that is pretty good for someone right out of the gate!
