Tried searching this answer and could not find it. First all-grain brew, Northern Brew all-grain kit.

Recipe calls for multi step mash at different temps. Does this mean I heat my water to the protein rest temp, add grains, wait for asked time, then raise temp to next step, wait time, etc?

Sorry if this question has been answered. Thank you in advance.

It means exactly what you stated. You add the grains at the first temperature rest to allow the protease enzymes to further degrade the proteins within the kernels before raising the temperature up to saccharification rests where the starches will solubilize and the anylase enzymes will be more active.
