I honestly couldnt tell you how much I put in. I put spices in beer like i put spices in when I cook, which is without measuring.

I can tell you that i put a cinnamon stick in for the full boil. I threw like 8-9 dashes of nutmeg in for the whole boil.

Then at the end, like 15 minutes left, I threw 3-5 more dashes of nutmeg, and 3-5 dashes of ground cinnamon.

I might have overdone it, but I will find out later.

Never done a sour mash, so I can't help you there.

Just transfered this into the secondary on Saturday. Gravity was at 1.018. But there has already been airlock activity in the secondary, so it should make it to around 1.010.

The sample taste was great.

What a great beer!
I used to think Avery's Ellie's Brown was my favorite brown, but I compared it to this and I actually like this better. Avery's tastes like it has too much dark crystal in it. I prefer the balance of this recipe.
Next time I brew this one I am going to up the chocolate malt and toast the oats!

As a homebrew newbie, I picked up the necessary hardware and brewed an all in one kit as my first batch. It was an all malt kit. A friend who hadn't had a beer in years said that it was fantastic and I kept the whole process as clean as a whistle. That was my only brew up to date and I'm ready to try this recipe.

Besides finding the correct (or very close) ingredients at my local homebrew store, how might this brewing process (recipe) be different than the all in one kit? Am I putting all of the ingredients above in the pot to boil?

If there are any brew clubs near you (Google it, since you don't have your location listed), you should try to hook up with someone local and help them out with a brewday. If that's not an option, be sure to read all of the sticky threads from the top of each topic on this forum, you will learn enough to figure out the process. If you plan to do this recipe all grain, you will need to make or buy more equipment than you probably already have. Read as much as you can, use the search function on this site, and don't be afraid to ask questions that you can't find the answer to. It's also a good idea to read "how to brew", which is free online at howtobrew.com. Good luck.
