FYI - with the pilsner malt and wheat malt, this is a partial mash. Those grains need conversion or else you're just adding starches to the beer. If you steeped at the temperature range given, you likely converted the starches in the grains into sugars. From a process perspective, steeping and mashing can be very similar, but with mashing, there's enzyme activity taking place.

Sounds like a nice, refreshing beer

Thanks for the terminology lesson. This was my 3rd homebrew, so I'm just experimenting and researching everything I do...and a lot of the terms are still foreign to me. Thanks for the encouragement!

No problem.

Since you have already done a partial mash, you may want to search the forum for partial mash techniques and other recipes, lots of great info on HBT. Also, for future brews, this chart outlines which grains require mashing: http://www.homebrewtalk.com/wiki/index.php/Malts_Chart

Thanks! I found a similar site and posted it in the beginning brewing section of HBT, but this was a little more organized and informative. Lots of good info.

This recipe just took 3rd place at the CASK Beer Blitz. Thought it was worth noting.
