    This is a fab recipe! I miss my RTA and don't wanna pay the $8 for the shipped beer to the
    East. You will not be disappointed. Do the blind test when you've let it condition for three
    weeks and then e...

    I just did the mash of this recipe this weekend and the yeast are working away as I write this;

    I gave the beer a full five months to condition and it was TREMENDOUS by the time I started

    I regularly stir the mash and keep the temp near 152 by adding a little boiling water, poured
    across a stainless steel spoon, as needed to keep it there. I LOVE the idea of keeping some DME

    :ban: and the wait was worth it! I brewed this back in late May b/c I knew it took FOREVER for
    those spices to blend appropriately. By October this is going to be a SMASHING beer. Here's the
    extract r...
