How much of a grain bill would you use to get this flavor in your opinion? Using Marris Otter as a base. I've got a cookie beer challenge that's been floating in my head.

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.

Got a late start, but everything went well.

Here's the final recipe I ended up with.

5 Gallons.

4# 4oz, Marris Otter
2# 4oz Crystal 60
1.25# Biscuit
3 ounces Flaked oats.
Mashed With.
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

1.55 OG.

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.

Thanks for the info Revvy, I'll have to check out the other thread to get the full story. But I have to ask if you mashed the cookies just because you could or if they are really giving that much flavor. How did the wort taste?

Ive wanted to try some MO or victory malt in my IPA... It seems to missing something... the hops are on spot... but the malt seems a lil thin... It just needs a lil more "roundness" if ya'll know what i mean...
