Does a thinner mash make it more difficult to keep your temperature up? During my first AG attempt, I missed my target mash temp by a degree, but that was after continuously adding hotter and hotter water to get the temp up. I ultimately ended up adding about 6 gallons of an 8 gallon total volume. I use a converted 48 qt. Igloo Ice Cube cooler which I've read good things about but it lost about 3 degrees every 20 mins. and that was while it was wrapped in blankets. I was wondering if my soupy mash contributed to the rapid heat loss. Thanks again!
