Don't worry about infections when you give it a mid-way stir Michael, as long as you sanitize whatever touches the wort, you'll be good to go. As stated, I always bring the wort up to a...

Re: AG scotch recipe probs ?

My grist (grind) is quite coarse also Michael. Strike temps for mash water can vary due to the environment, mine can vary from 68C - 72C, dependent on the weather here in Scotland...

Sparging amounts can vary and are dependent on many factors that can change frequently like evaporation rate (dependent on humidity and temp, size of pot, etc.), deadspace in the MLT and kettle.
