OK the updated plan is -

Add 30g of crushed grain (15g for RB and CM) and steep for 15 min in 500mL of approx 66C water - Close to 1.040 and the grain makes up about 32%

After steeping add 60g of LME and microwave for 5 minutes - From what I've read one should microwave longer but I think for this small volume it should be ok.

Cool and add to bottle.

Add small amount of yeast (US05) - I think I worked out I would need 0.3g of yeast, not measurable for me so I'll just guestimate that one and hope my pitching amounts are similar.

Add sanitised balloon to bottle

Ferment

Cap - no going to worry about decanting off the sediment, shouldn't matter for the small amount of time it will be sitting on it, it's probably a good thing anyway.

Age 1 week.

Analyze.

Wouldn't it be simpler to do your first idea of a regular 60 minute boil of all the extract, and use this as a base, then do a number of small steeps for your specialty grains and then add a predetermined amount of the base wort to it.

You could probably steep the specialty grains in a variety of vessels. Cups, bowls, etc. I would think that this is closer to a beer then using a microwave.

That was the original plan but it would mean a second sanitisation in the microwave anyway to kill the bacteria on the grain.

I'm thinking of using a thermos to steep the grain in, should hold the temperature better. Will be a little more time consuming though.

I was also thinking of fermenting and aging in the same bottle. Make sure to add either sugar or carb-tabs to get some carbonation, that will change a lot about a beer.
