They state to bring 6 litres to the boil then add the malt, and then add the remainder of the dried malt at a later stage.
What will happen to the hot break when adding additional malt?
The method which I'm thinking of doing is bringing 10 litres up to temp then adding all 3kg malt at once. Once hot break has passed carry on with the instructions with the hop additions.
My other questions is the instructions say to steep with heat turned off for final hop additions.
Am I right in thinking that steeping just involves turning heat off and leaving to stand for the instructed time
Do I need to place the lid on my pan 2 whilst steeping

there is one part of the subject that has been debated and in my mind never been concluded, I know we say that there is not hot break in extract however...... sticking my neck out here.
When I have brewed with extract I have had what seems to be a hot break - the creamy foam on top of the boil increasing exponentialy to almost climb out the pot.
What would this be? Is that the boil is to vigerous?:D
