So we use one of the 10 gallon rubbermaid coolers for our mashtun and I was just curious on what other people do in terms of stirring during their mash if they use coolers. Our efficiency runs a bit low and when we pitch in the strike water we just leave it sit until it’s time for sparging.
What is the standard protocol for mashing with a cooler? Do people stir it a bit or not? Would that help to improve our efficiency at all or just drop the temp? Just a random thought I had. Any advice would be great.
