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.

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.
