Maybe I'm being thick, but why doesn't recirculating the mash cause hot oxidation? Is that only a concern after boiling - in other words at temperatures over 180F (hottest mash-related temp I've seen mentioned.

I think HSA is a paper tiger for most homebrewers. I have do doubt that it exists, I just don't think we need to worry overly about it. Sure, take common sense precautions, but don't kill yourself. Lots more important things to obsess over, like sanitation and fermentation.

So far so good.
