Default Mini-Mash vs Extract

What is the difference? Cooking time (steeping?)

Count on an hour more than an extract batch. When I do mini-mashes, I'll use a really big mesh bag (it's as big as my kettle) and a little over a quart of water per pound of grain. After an hour, I add all the rest of the water for the batch at 170F, or so. Then gently stir the grain for 15 minutes before removing the bag and adding the extract. I've gotten great results.
