comment overheated the mash by a long shot
It was too late. I don't typically do one and have had good success so far. Now I am just trying fix a mistake.

I got a mahogany color on the iodine test,which would indicate some starches are still present, but the yeast is thriving(still bubbling at a good clip after 2 days) so I'm getting something.

Thanks for the input. Is there any way I can check at this point to see what I've got? Would adding simple sugar help?

Will do. I plan a duplicate batch this week, minus the temperature error, but I don't need the fermenter.

Thanks. I may as well wait it out. Beer is in the primary and there's nothing to gain by pouring it out. May as well let it ride.

It started lower, about 170, and fluctuated.. I used a fry thermometer through the lid. When I pitched the yeast I got a good bubble, so I there must some sugar.
