Awesome i think i have all the info i need on the steeping. Thanks everyone!
One last thing: with the yeast, the recipe says "The proper pitch rate is 2.5 packages of liquid yeast or 1 package of liquid yeast in a 3.1-liter starter."
As I am planning on using dry yeast, would I be safe with 1.5 packets of yeast? Is this too much?
