Steeping grains

(1/3) > >>

flbrewer:
If I am doing a partial boil (possibly full) for 5 gallons, can I steep the grains inside in a separate pot (maybe a gallon or so of water) first than add to the main kettle? Would be more convenient as I can do that part inside on the stove.

Also, do you steep with the lid on?

morticaixavier:
yes and sure, if you want to. it will maintain temp better.
 

flbrewer:
So it won't matter that the grains aren't steeping in 2.5 or 3 gallons and only 1 gallon before adding?

euge:
Well some grains need to be mashed but some can be steeped like tea for flavor.

flbrewer:
Sorry, this is for a full extract. Should've clarified.
