Yes I do, i forgot about that thanks I could certainly add in a 1/2 lb of that. Maybe even toast 1/4lb of that, with 1/2lb of the two row.

you could look in your spice rack for some other spices that could be used to bitter with. gruit was made with all kinds of things other than hops. theres' a book called Ancient Sacred and Healing Beers, or something like that which has lots of recipes and ideas for other bittering spices.

Like one of the earlier posters mentioned, do you have any Spruce trees nearby.... have had some very nice spruce tip beer in the past and have always wanted to try brewing a batch.

That's an awful lot of spicing. The ginger in particular is going to be pretty strong, I'll bet.

I can drop the ginger down to 2 tblsp. I also picked up some ground orange peel from the spice isle the other day when i was in the store. So maybe i'll substitute that for the actual orange peel and zest.

I could do

60.000 min Misc addition : Put 1.000 tbsp Ground Orange Peel into boil for 60.000 min.
60.000 min Misc addition : Put 1.000 tbsp Ginger Root into boil for 60.000 min.

3.000 min Misc addition : Put 1.000 tbsp Ground Orange Peel into boil for 3.000 min.
3.000 min Misc addition : Put 1.000 tbsp Ginger Root into boil for 3.000 min.
3.000 min Misc addition : Put 1.333 tbsp Lemon Herb Tea(4 bags) into boil for 3.000 min.
