Steeping grains

(1/3) > >>

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?

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

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

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

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