I've read that different steeping temperatures. What does steeping with lower temperatures for a longer period result in versus higher temperatures. I know about the tannins with temps above 170. I'm interested in the benefits of steeping at lower temps.

Since I'm a partial masher, I also got in the habit of steeping at 153-160F for 30 minutes. Usually a bit lower than 160F. I also sparge the steeped grains to add to the main steep to get my boil volume up to about 3 1/2 gallons in my 5 gallon kettle.:mug:
