When doing all grain you put all of your grains together in the mash. No need to separate out specialty grains.
Thanks for the reply so it has to be food grade then? Because I have a 1/4 horse water pump that will pump 5gal a minute I was thinking if I could use it, all I would have to do is choke down the flow a little.
On the grains that is what I thought but a friend of mine that I am trying to get into brewing said he read in a book that you have to steep the specialty grains separately to achieve proper taste and flavor from the grains. I said that we would try it on another batch of beer that I have made before to test the taste difference.
