Thanks everyone, actually it was the flavoring hops that went in last, not the grains. They went in first... I really did go by the instructions, although reading everything I've posted make me wonder if I'm some sort of idiot!
Bought an IPA from G&G yesterday I'll do this weekend in case the Alt doesn't turn out. I just wonder if I strained all the flavor out of it when it went into the ferment bucket... I guess time will tell. I'll let you know in 2 weeks when I pop the first Alt.

I usually steep at 152F for about 25 minutes.
Oh, NO!! I've been steeping the grains until just before boil, at about 200-210...am I going to have 15 gallons of ****e?
