Note: This is an experimental recipe, it may be changed; use at your own risk.

As explained in my previous posts, I am limited to what I can use, as far as grains and hops go. So, I often have to improvise. I encourage those who want to try this recipe to use my original vision (or do changes yourself) of the recipe:
5 lbs CaraPils (Canadian 2-row)
.5 lbs CaraMunich (British malt)
.25 lbs Special "B" (Chocolate malt)

Also, for those wondering why the fermentation time is so long, I'm at college which is far from home. I can only visit once to two times a month.

Now to the recipe:

Base Grain:
5 lb. Canadian 2-row

Specialty Grain:
.25 lb. Chocolate malt
.5 lb. British 2-row malt

7 lb. Light Extract
.10 lb.
2 lb. Belgian candi (Turbinado sugar)
1 oz. Coriander seed (crushed)
1 oz. Cinnimon stick.
.5 oz. Clove
.25 oz. Anise seed
1/3 cup+. clove honey (primer)
Irish Moss (clarifier)

3 oz Common hops (60 min)
1 oz Common hops( 15 min)

Belgian Ale Yeast WLP550
6 L Sparge OG: 1.095
12 L Boil FG: 1.012
23 L Final
