Just for clarification, nothing needs to be steeped in? All my previous brews I had to put grains in a sack and steep for a while. I'm a little confused. I bought all the ingredients listed and I look forward to brewing this this weekend!!

Nope. No need for specialty grains on the extract version of this recipe.

Sweet! That's similar to mine which turned out awesome - I added corn sugar a couple days into primary fermentation to boost the ABV as I didn't have it all on hand on brew day.

brewed this a couple of weeks ago, mine finished nice and dry at 1.008. I fermented pretty low at 64 and raised it up to 70 through the week. I think I'll cold crash it, and then add T-58 for a bottling yeast, which might give it a little more peppery taste.

Bucfanmike - you should specify which yeast strain you are talking about. But, unless its a Belgian strain, I wouldn't bother. All the flavor comes from the yeast.
