Mini mash?
 
I am looking at ordering my next kit and wanted to know if a mini mash is the same as a partial grain?

Mini mash is the same as a partial mash. You'll need to mash the grains you get-- it's not just steeping them like you do with typical specialty grains in a kit.

Yes, and the only differences between steeping and PM are temperature (lower) and time (longer).

I did one extract w/ specialty grains kit before I moved on to partial mash brewing and I've never looked back. MUCH cleaner beer even if you miss the mark (so far no tannin leaching). Since I don't have the time or the money for an AG setup, this is the perfect method for me.

SmugMug, when you say you don't have the money for an AG setup, what additional pieces of equipment are needed?
