Not a lot really. I am no grain scientist but here is the gist... Steeping, you are getting some sugar, color, flavor. A lot of typical specialty grains like caramel don't need mashed, as they go through a process before hand. For a mash You need a more controlled temp to convert the mashed grain (2row, pilsner, etc) enzymes to fermentable sugars. Temp is critical to the fermentability. You can successfully mash in a kettle on the stove (look up brew in a bag BIAB). It can be tricky with large malt bills if you have a smaller kettle.

hey skeezer thanks for posting this. just wondering -- do you do any type of hot whirlpool/steep at the end of boil (if so, how long), OR do you just begin chilling immediately? thanks!

I usually toss in at flameout, and be lazy about hooking the chiller up. Prob a 10 min steep or so. I also try stir until the wort gets to 100 or so, it goes much faster when stirring.

I would say double check the calibration on your hydro and your thermometers the last time my beer finished that high my thermometers where reading 15 degrees low

Whats the total time needed for this to be drinkable? I need to have something brewed and bottled by 4/28... any chance this could work if I brew it tomorrow (4/4)? I could force carb to at least cut down on some of the time.

I have carbed it after 3 weeks and it was good, as usual though it got better after a week or so in the keg. I would say you will be ok. 10-12 day primary, 7 day dryhop, a couple day cold crash then carb.
