To bob and zeg,

Lol, have a beer an relax. We r all here to learn and teach. No matter how much we know, we can always learn more.

I appreciate the help from both of you, but your quoting each other to prove your own point and not really helping the OP (me) lol. I know you want to post the proper info so you don't mislead others.

I would really like if someone can help me with my question in post #19

I think I have a extract kit but was told it's a partial mash kit but might have giving wrong info due to being a noob.

Sorry for the confusion.


Thanks for anyone who can help me understand this.

With 19% 2-row and the rest Extract and Crystal malt, you have a Partial Mash kit. Nothing zeg says to the contrary will change that fact.

You can mash the 2-row with the Crystal malt to simplify things. They don't necessarily need to be mashed and steeped seperately.

What exactly does the bag say? Most caramel/crystal malt bags ive seen say something like "caramel 60L 2-row malt". If thats the case here, thats definitely a crystal malt and does not have to be mashed.

Im asking if its just 2-row or "caramel 60l (or what have you) 2-row", basically crystal 60 (which is a 2-row malt)

True, but I've never heard a kit refer to Crystal 60 as 2-row.

However, I see what you're saying because of this statement...

I'm confused... because first the OP said he had 1.5 lbs. of 2-row and no crystal. Then he said he had only 1 lb. 2-row and a bit of crystal. He never said it was Crystal 60 either.

Thanks guys and sorry for the confusion. I thought it was 1.5lbs but it's just 1lb. I will post a pic in a second. I don't know my grains yet, but it does say 2 row but when bob said you don't have to mash crystal I got confused bc it says crystal.

Pic will be up in a min.

Thanks.

Right, thats definitely a crystal malt. Dont worry at all about mashing, just steep as per the instructions.
