You are correct about the heating up. A large compact pile will heat up more than a small compact pile will, but by keeping it in a large pile you are inviting it to go anaerobic.I thought that you had to have a heap that is fairly compact if you want it to heat up? I'm concerned that if I spread it out the reaction will slow down or stop altogether.
After going it after it with my mini tiller the heating up stopped. So I threw some more grass on there today.
I will admit that I am irrationally delighted to see steam coming off the pile because I've been seeking this sign of activity for so long.
