I've slowly worked all the kinks out of my brew process and before I go throwing more wrenches into the spokes, I wanted to get your opinions.
The answer totally depends on the grain bill and your taste. If you like beers that use a lot of under modified grains and adjuncts, or have specific rests based on the style, then it would be worth it to you
to step mash. For more standard brews using high percentages of well modified grain like American 2-row, it would be a waste of time and effort. As in everything home-brewing, it's up to you!
