Interesting. Is it worth buying the extra grain?
That is up to you to decide. Cold steeping provides a smoother flavor. You can get a smoother flavor by using huskless dark grains like carafa and midnight wheat. However there is no huskless replacement for roasted barley that I'm aware of.
Anyway I'll continue to do cold extracts for 2nd running beers
