So I'm probably going to be ordering my first equipment next week, and was looking at what I would try for my first brew and was figuring extract might be a bit easier while I'm learning. So I was looking at the Kits on Northern Brewer, and it seems like most of the darker ale kits include some grains.
For example The English Pale Extract Kit sounds awesome:
But looking at the kit inventory it shows:
0.5 lbs. Simpsons Crystal
All kits also contain a muslin mesh bag for steeping the grains (if required).
This sounds more like Partial Mash than a straight extract correct? Or am I misinterretting something here?
