Sparge. Add 6 lbs. pislner DME to wort and boil for 60 minutes.

Additional spice:

Hops and spice stayed with the beer throughout fermentation and were filtered out at bottling.


Great initial taste but i think it finishes too dry and too hoppy. Maybe up the temperature of the middle part of the mash into the 150's.
