Extract uses malt extract. Adding specialty grains to an extract batch provide color and flavor but very little in fermentable sugar. Steeping requires putting grains in a bag but that is not the technique that northern brewer is referring to. Brew in a bag (BIAB) refers to a technique to all grain brew, other than the traditional 3 tier setup. Many people go this route when the want to advance to all grain and don't want/have the money to buy all grain equipment or brewing space is an issue.

just kicked the keg on an extract brew that I got from Midwest. It turned out to be an AWESOME snout. I'd like to clone it so I can get ingredients locally and not have to pay shipping.. Turned out beautiful. Did I say I really liked it?
Cheers, Bill

I have Northern Brewers Dry Irish Stout in the bottle. Excellent flavor and body. NBs Big Honkin Stout in a primary. These two extract kits come with steeping grains. Just ordered the Oatmeal Stout. The Oatmeal Stout is a partial mash kit. You are offered a choice of yeasts. The basic instructions with the kits are pretty good. Read them thoroughly and begin writing notes with your first addition to the boil.
