Does anyone run their grain mill over their mash tun right into the strike water? Any issues with doing that?

I wouldn’t do that – no margin for error if you need to make mill adjustments, the steam from the strike water will probably gum up the mill, but most importantly, you’ll probably lose a lot of heat from your strike water leaving the mash tun open. Not sure the benefit (I assume just one less step?) would be worth the risks.

If you’re 100% confident in your mill and don’t think it is/nor care if it is failing to crack some of the grains then I see no issue. Why mill into something just to have to transfer it in anyways? I could see moisture having some effect but how much steam really comes off at strike temp and maybe if ya have the mill high enough up?

Going to get moisture in your mill
Makes a doughy mess. You’re also going to miss your mash temperatures. Not a good idea. Just mill into a bucket.
