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.

Partial mash means something different. Explained above.

This is a technical difference, not semantic. I.e., you can buy extract kits (with steeping specialty grains), partial mash kits with greater grain diversity, and all grain kits.

So when people use these terms they do mean something specific.

Edit: this post is in agreement with RM-MN's post that I found informative and helpful.

Thanks, RM-MN, for explaining that difference between steeping grains and actually doing a partial mash. I always wondered exactly how they were different!

Don't sweat the minutiae!

I see. So the process would be steep grains at 154 for 30 min. Remove and drain grains. Add remaining extracts and boil adding your hops when appropriate.
Does that sound right?

That is certainly one way to do it. As you brew more you will likely tweak the method here and there to suit you better.

Brewing is a very personal experience.

So i Brewed the All grain version of this today. Due to one "assistant" helping themselves to a few to many home brews i ended up with about a gallon more than anticipated. Was aiming for an 8 gal batch, ended up with 9.

Still came in around 1.048 for the OG.

Looking forward to tasting this one. Smelled amazing! I split this into my two smaller carboys. Was going to soak 1 Vanilla bean in some whiskey and toss it into a secondary for one batch.. now I'm debating whether i should do it with both?!! Decisions.. Decisions...

I tossed my Jameson soaked beans in the other day, I'll report back. I will say the vanilla infused Jameson is a nice side affect of brewing this recipe.

I ended up getting 3rd place in my monthly homebrew club BJCP contest with this. Not bad for my first year of brewing. Based on the judging sheets I will tweak it if I make it again later, and it will probably be done all grain also.

Still have 6 bottles left, will probably open one this weekend.
Started brewing February 2012. Still brewing.
