I know a lot of you have tried this kit and I have one question. The directions say to
"soak the grains for 45min at 155 degrees. Lift the grain bag in and out of the water as if it was a tea bag."

Am I doing this for the whole 45min or just at the end?

I figure that some did it the whole time and some only at the end so I just wanted to see how each turned out?

Dunk it off and on through the whole time- they want you to rinse all the goodness out of the grain. You don't have to stand like a sentinel over it, just dunk it every 10 minutes or so. You could stir it every 10 minutes instead if your bag is large and not tied up. Either would work.
