You certainly do not boil a mash tun. There is no means of secondary heating in a mash tun which is only to convert the starch to fermentable sugars. Boiling is a later stage in the brewing process and does not happen at all in the distilling industries. The alcohol is driven off later by heat but that is a different subject.

There is a series of books called "Ey up mi duck", by the late Rick Scollins and John Titford, about the dialect of Ilkeston, not very far from Pinxton. We used to mash tea there too, and no doubt they still do.
