Throw all your grains in at the same time....crush and mix them all together.

All the grains get crushed & mixed together to be mashed at the same time.
Sounds like you got some more reading to do.

Don't jump straight into a batch before you understand the basics. That'll help a lot.

Another thing to think about when adding the Dark specialty grains is to crush them separately and add them at vorlauff. This will help to keep the PH from dropping down too low (if you're using really soft water such as RO or Distilled water) and it also keeps it from getting the harsh flavors that some dark grains can add. There is no need to mash the specialty grains because all of their sugar has been converted already and you're really only soaking them at this point, but for convenience, most people just add them to the rest of the grains and continue on.
