I do not wish to start a war of semantics between whether this recipe should be called "extract with specialty grains" or "Partial mash", but it certainly is NOT "all extract"
The crystal, chocolate, and roasted barley are all steeped in the brew pot before adding the extract. Call it what you like, but it is a 2-step recipe that requires steeping grains first, then adding extract and hops for the boil.
