       It has to do with how they added the water:  They ladled it in.
       Master Ateno and Master Geoffrey de Wigan did some experimental
work after noticing that in Markham, and developed the "Four Ounce Ladle" 
method.  For a 5 gallon batch, turn off the heat under your strike water and 
ladle it into the mash vessel with a four ounce ladle, stirring three times 
between ladles.  When you're done the mash temp will be 151-155 F.
