Holy threadbumping, I had to re-read the thread to figure out what you were talking about. LOL
I still haven't figured it out. But in my last Marris Otter/Biscuit iteration I did this. Unfortunately since I can't drink for another few weeks I can't tell you how this tastes yet.
From my ginger snap brown ale thread.

Here's the final recipe I ended up with.
4# 4oz, Marris Otter
2# 4oz Crystal 60
3 ounces Flaked oats.
2-14 ounce boxes Ginger Snaps (I used Kroger brand, but wanted to use Meijer's house brand. Find one that you like the flavor of. Or bake your own.)
Mashed 2.88 gallons @ 154 for 60 minutes.
Sparged 5.75 gallons @ 168
Pre-boil volume 6.5 gallons
1.2 ounces Fuggles @ 60
.64 ounces fuggles @ 15
There is definitely a bisquity, crackery/cookie smell to the wort with a definite hint of ginger snap (not just ginger, but baked cookie.) I may have over hopped a tad, but I've noticed that with fuggles, it's pretty overpowering in the wort, so I won't really know til I'm actually drinking it if the hops overpower everything.
