1 Pound Light Vienna
1 Pound 2 Row
1 Pound 6 Row pilsener

3 pounds dry amber extract
1 pound dry light extract

mashed for one hour at 152 F (one and a half gallons), and ramped it up to 160 for 15 minutes.
sparged (2 gallons) with a bucket set up (bottling bucket with a plastic false bottom and a hose attatched to the center)

boiled half of the partial mash wort for half an hour to caramelize (to somewhat replicate decoction flavors), then added the rest of the wort and the extract.

boiled for one hour

added 2 ounces of hallerteau hops at the beginning
one more with 5 minutes left in the boil.

added a gallon of spring water and a 10 pound bag of ice to the fermentor

dumped in the wort, added the prunes and the yeast starter, sealed it up.

Note to brewers: don't use ice to cool your wort. Who knows what crap is in there. Not really safe to use for your beer.
