I use Brewers Best kits and do full boils (5g). I was thinking the next batch i do, when I steep the specialty grains, I might add a lb of 2-row with it. I guess to kinda get my feet in the water and to make a stronger beer. Now, obviously this is way too much water for one lb of malt; my question is...
With so much water per pound, is this just a waste of time? will it ruin my beer? or will it just add a weak dose of fermentable sugar and nothing more?
