Doesn't the grain lower the temperature? I know this is a noobie question, but any help would be great. Also, what is step temperature?

This is the recipe: http://www.homebrewchef.com/Westmall...oneRecipe.html

If someone can break it down in to lay men's terms that would be even better. I am trying to understand the process more so than I do by looking at recipes.

The right temp depends on the desired grist ratio. (Water to grain) 1:1 usually about 11'F higher. You need to use a step calculator. Try this one.
