hello HBT board! i have brewed about 4 extract kits and have been somewhat happy with the results. i think i want to take the leap into AG very soon.
i am somewhat confused about what will need to be done in the AG process. what is the difference btwn steeping the grains that come with a extract kit vs the lautering/mashing process? also, are hop pellets used in the AG process? futhermore, will i need to drop some dough on some new hardware? here is what i currently own:
2 fermenters (plastic)
1 bottling bucket
any feedback is appreciated. thanks!
