Ok, so I got the blue moon clone recipe from AHS, and it has 7# wheat extract, 1/2 lb white wheat, 1 lb flaked oats, 1/2 lb flaked wheat, and 1/2 lb belgian pilsener malt.... it tells me to steep at 155 in 2 1/2 gallons of water. Are these things that need base malt to be converted and a specific mash volume or are these just like regular steeping grains?

As we speak I have about 1 1/2 gallons of water heating up to this temp....

thanks in advance for the reply.

You need them to convert. You have "base malt" in the pilsner malt. Follow their instructions and you should be fine.

You do need them to convert. You should follow the directions. If they call for using 2.5 gallons for the mini-mash, use that. Not 1.5 gallons, that will make a difference.
