Okay, so I haven't gone all-grain yet, but I plan on it very soon. As soon as the money is there, and I answer this question, I will be on my way.

This might be a really quick one, or a really involved one, but I couldn't find it anywhere.

Currently, I'm doing extract brews with specialty grains that need to be steeped. My question: If I were to do an AG batch that had base grains AND specialty grains, do the specialty grains need to be steeped before the boil, or are they just mashed with the base grains? Is there any steeping in AG?

In the mash. No steeping. I measure out and mix my grain a few batches ahead of time, then crush it all the night before a brewday.

All grain is an equal opportunity brewing technique.

All grains get equal treatment. Toss em all in and mash all the same.

Glad to hear that no grain is being discriminated against. We have come very far as a society.
