Sparge. Add 6 lbs. pislner DME to wort and boil for 60 minutes.
add 1lb of caramlized table sugar @ 15min.

0.75 oz Hallertau (3.8) @ 30 mins
0.25 oz Hallertau (3.8) @ 5 mins
1 oz Corriander Seeds @ 5 mins with the last hops.
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.
