New mini-decoction method:
Infuse grain @ 140F, rest 20 minutes
Take out 40% of the grain (thick mash), bring grain to a boil
Boil the grain no longer than 30 minutes, or as long as it takes before the grain gets sticky / potentially scorchable.
Return grain to tun -- should be 156-158F. Rest another 20-30 minutes
Draw out about 1 gallon of wort -- bring to boil
Add back to tun -- should bring mash temperature to 170F. Recirculate, then sparge.

NOTE: See mash manager for strike and sparge
