Put 2.5 gallons of cold, filtered water into pot. Added malted wheat (in muslin bag) to pot and brought the water to 180 degrees. Steeped the wheat for 30 minutes. Removed bag of wheat and brought the water to boil.
It sounds like it's saying the wheat should be added to the pot while the water's still cold, but that doesn't make sense to me. It must mean to bring the water to 180 degrees first, then steep for 30 minutes, right?
