Mash Out 168°F 10 HERMS

From Cullen's Notes:

Single infusion mash main rest at 160F, then stepped up to mashout at 168F. This took longer than I wanted due to to my unfamiliarity with the system and running the HERMS a bit too slow.

Collected about 32 gallons while sparging and boiled for 3 hours to end up with about 25 gallons of wort at 1.073 initial gravity.

I wanted to get 1.080 as starting gravity, but I overestimated the efficiency. Again, I blame my unfamiliarity with the system.
