Honestly I think that term came form the greenboard and it is being used here.....I think it is kind of stupid too, but does that prevent me from saying it? ....No.

As for partial mash--I don't get it. If you are even remotely thinking about doing partial mash, just take the extra step and go all-grain. The equipment upgrade is ridiculously cheap, easier, and ultimately will make your batches cheaper. DME/LME is expensive when you compare to just grain.

it might be kind of hard (low effeciency) to mash that much in a collander, i usually mash 6-7 lbs,and add 3 lbs d.m.e. but i do it in some frost buckets i got at the food store. just go to Shoprite, or a-n-p or whever you jersey people shop these days and ask in the bakery section for some buckets they use for frosting. you will need two, clean em up real good and make a zap-pap mash/luater tun for free...

p.s. dont let them try and give you pickle buckets, you will never get that smell out! frosting buckets are great, they are food-grade and are usually 4.5 g. which is perfect for up to 8-10 lbs. grain.
