When adding the spice tea, do you pour it into secondary and rack on top of it? Will the racking be enough to mix it well?

When making the spice tea, do you just add the spice directly to the hot water or do you need to make a tea bag of sorts?

If you're using ground spices, just add them directly to the water. If you're using whole spices, tie them up in some cheesecloth or bundle them with some cotton string.

Single infusion mash at 158° F for 45-60 mins
Mash out at 168°F
Sparge with 178°F water to collect 17.5g of wort
Boil 60 mins


When you say mash out what exactly do you mean? Is this for a all grain set up with three containers for boiling the wort? I guess I should ask what sparge means as well. I'm only familiar with kits using LME and specialty grains that require only to boil the wort and cool. Thanks for any info.

You are reading the all grain recipe. Look at the very first post in this thread for the extract recipe.

I don't want to turn this thread into an all grain brewing primer - that information is available via this forum, its wiki, www.howtobrew.com, and many other sources.

Also, you are likely a new AG brewer and I would dissuade anyone from using this recipe as your first AG. Not a difficult recipe, but certainly not a beginner recipe either. The Extract version of this recipe makes a Fantastic beer.

Hi Yuri Rage! I compared the extract version with the all-grain version and they are quite different. You edited the extract version and added a note saying the recipe has been improved. It seems like you didn't edit the all-grain version to reflect such improvements, right?

I seems the modified grain bill should be:

10 lb 4 oz American Two-row Pale
1 lb Caramel/Crystal Malt - 60L
8 oz Biscuit Malt
4 oz Flaked Wheat

Please correct me if I'm wrong.

Thanks!

My last iteration of the grain bill for a 6 gallon AG batch was:

9.6 lbs 2 row
2.3 lbs C60
1.1 lbs Biscuit
0.5 lbs Flaked Wheat
72 oz Canned Pumpkin

70% efficiency
