Grain Bill:
5.5 lbs 2-Row Pale Malt
4.5 lbs Munich Malt
1 lb 2.0 oz Caramel/Crystal Malt 10L
1 lb Victory Malt
10 oz Special B Malt

Hops:
1 oz Cascade 6.2% AA [60 Min]
1 oz Cascade 6.2% AA [10 Min]

Adjuncts:
1 Whirlfloc tab [15 Min]
2 crushed cinnamon sticks [7 Min]
6 crushed cloves [7 Min]
12 crushed all spice pods [7 min]
1 oz grated ginger [7 min]

Yeast:
Danstar dry Nottingham

Batch Size: 5.25 G
Efficiency: 75%
OG: 1.064
Est FG: 1.014
Est ABV: 6.6%
IBUs (Rager): 26.1
Color: 17.3 SRM
Might have to give this a shot!!

I am not too sure on the grain bill, as I am still in the extract realm.

Also, I am still drinking this one, and it is developing nicely. I added my ginger too early, so I have been waiting for it to mellow out. I still have 11-12 bombers, and plan on bringing them to family over the holidays.
The more I think about the yeast substitution, the more I think you're right. I haven't brewed this yet, mostly because I wasn't sure about that. A bit late to brew this in time for Christmas, but seasons and styles be damned... I will be brewing this using the recipe I posted, but will use the recommended yeast.

I hear ya! I just bottled a cherry stout a couple of weeks ago, and transferred a Indian Brown Ale to the secondary last night. I'm hoping they are ready for Christmas with family and friends, but if not, I'll just some beers out of the pipeline to hand out!

I hope the yeast works for you. Mine has a great flavor, and it has been a hit with everyone so far.

Good luck on your brew!
