Default ahs arrol's 80 shilling q's?

Just ordered my first kit, austin homebrew's arrol 80 shilling. I ordered the extract kit which is supposed to come with:

Extract: 5.5 lbs. Liquid Malt Extract, 2 lbs. Specialty Grains

Is this purely extract or partial as it says, Extract kit includes: priming sugar, milled specialty grains in a muslin bag, hops, and detailed instructions? Somebody told me that I will have to steep my grains, is this the case and where is a good source of how-to's on this.

Any experiences with arrol's or other shilling ales of this type?

Thanks!

It's an extract kit. The instructions will likely tell you exactly how to steep the grains. A quick search of the terms, steep and grain, will probably turn up a few answers for you. Otherwise, try www.howtobrew.com.

Just follow the instructions that come with the kit. Generally speaking people steep their grains at 150-155 degrees. Think of it like making a cup of tea. You put the bag in the hot water till all the flavor and color comes out and...Walah! your steeping grains!

easy stuff. I'm sure you'll have lots of questions and your in the right place! Congrats on taking the step on brewing your first brew!

cheers,
