Sounds Deliciouso... A vegetable starch adjunct beer is on my to-do list.

I was thinking of something a little strange, maybe yucca, rutabaga... parsnip, see this is why I haven't sat down and put one together yet. Maybe I might just stick to sweet taters and punk-ins.

So you add the sweet potatos to your mash at 3 mins left of mash? Tell me what you think, this sounds great, I just hope there is no stuck sprage from sweet potato gunk.

I think ohad meant that the taters go into the mash for the entire mash time, and the spices go into the boil at the last 3 min.

Ok got it, this sounds like a great fall beer but im not picky about seasons. I think I will do this after I brew up my chimay clone and my Bitburgale is done.

I was talking to a guy the other day about his pumpkin beer and tasting it (really good), turns out that he ages it for a year before it gets to be good, has a lot of vegetable characteristics before that, you may need to do the same with yours, at least save a six pack for that long to try it out.

Rock on! Why the spices? Do they bring out the the sweet potato flavor?

Sounds like an interesting alternative to a pumpkin beer. I may have to try this in a small batch...

Also, is this the same ohad from athleticsnation.com?
