Default Definitions? Abreviations?

So many different words, terminologies etc. Racking? OG? HLT? Is there a book, so I know what you are talking about?

Racking - transfer of beer or wort.
OG - original gravity - specific gravity of wort before pitching
HLT - hot liquor (liquid) tank - vessel that hold the hot water used for the mash and sparge.

Here is the glossary on this site:

"The Complete Joy of Homebrewing" is a must read.
These are the books I recommend:
