maybe it's just my LHBS, but their roasted grains all seem to be de-husked. (?)

Could be, that seems a bit odd though. Are you sure you know what husks look like?

OK ...don't let me have to go searching It was here on these forums that I learned about the 150 to 170 range for steeping and it was 170 that was the limit before getting Tannins released. Then that is what led me to (again pointed there from these forums) to Palmer's instructions....150-170 degrees. Now you are saying 160?
