1) What kind of brew is this? I see malt and extract.
2) What size? I assume atleast 6 gallon because of the 6.6lbs of gold malt extract.
3) In notes I'm having trouble understanding the following terms:
I think the prior post answered most of the questions you had.
I too am a newbie brewer...and I just brewed this as my first beer this past weekend...but I used a beer kit from Midwest Supplies.
The Crystal Mal and Carapils are grain....this is what gets steeped in the 155 degree water.
The extract gets boiled and I would guess this is a 5 gallon batch as my kit had 6 or 6.5 lbs of Gold Malt Extract. I add half at 60 minutes (beginning of the boil) and then the other half at 10 minutes (10 minutes lefts on the 60 minutes boil time) in order to prevent the malts from darkening during the boil.
