Perhaps a dumb question - but why would you sparge with an extract brew? I am trying to fighre out AG and my understanding is that sparging is part of the process where the sweet wort is produced. Since this is unnecessary with extract - why the sparge? In fact, what is meant by sparging in this case? (Brewwiki only has definitions for batch and fly sparging - so if I'm missing something basic I tried the search feature
