You're right. I never said that you must mash crystal. I said you have to mash 2-row. Unfortunately, the label here can mislead new brewers. Originally, YOU said you had 2-row. Crystal wasn't mentioned until the 2nd page of the thread.

2-row is an enzyme rich base malt that must be mashed. Crystal is derived from a 2-row base. It it turned into Crystal by the maltster, which makes it toasty and rich with caramel flavors.

That picture is medium British crystal. It has no starch. It only requires a steep.

Bob read the quote. I never said you told me to mash crystal I said you told me I don't have to. That's where I got confused. Bc everyone said mash 2 row and steep crystal but this bag says crystal and 2 row. Not good for a beginner.

I appreciate all the help and sorry for misleading anybody. I have a lot to learn.

Ps sorry for not mentioning crystal at first. I thought 2 row was a kind of crystal...
