Will keep you updated as things ferment. The actual brew session went very smoothly as the step up mash worked better then expected. We BIAB and have only done 6 beers so far this after extract brewing for the better half of a year. Very excited to see how this tastes and smells next week.

Beer is going AWESOME. Tasted it when we took a gravity reading after only 8 days and it's almost dead on to the original. G down to 1014 in 8 days! Going to rack to secondary this weekend and lager outside in the very cold NYC. (it's been in the high 20's to low 30's here) Plan on 3 weeks or so in the cold and then will bottle it up.

Will report G and more notes soon.
If you're thinking about brewing this, do it.

CORRECTION: gravity down to 1012 after 8 days.

On the ginger, is the weight of 2.4 grams if using dried ginger root or the weight of a fresh ginger root?

Fresh grated.

Thanks jkarp.
I was going to pick up some dried ginger since thats what the lhbs has and I'm going there today. From my understanding the dried ginger is a little more potent. I plan to do a 10 gallon batch so I would need 8 grams of fresh grated. Does 6 grams of the dry sound about right?

Man, I don't know. I definitely agree the dried would be stronger but I have no clue on the conversion. Maybe the LHBS can offer advice.

Thanks again, I went ahead and picked up some fresh ginger from Nature's Pantry.

The lhbs didn't have paradise so I went there to see if they did, no luck. I also checked another natural foods store with no luck. What else is paradise used for? Both stores asked me and I had no clue. I need to order a few other things from NB so I'll probably get it there, but I was surprised that it wasn't available anywhere local. I've never heard of it before this recipe, so I don't know where else to look.

I had to look hard to find Seeds of Paradise.
Not a common ingredient at my LHBS, I ended up going to Brooklyn Home Brew instead of The Brooklyn Kitchen.

Racking 6 gallons to secondary and lagering today!

Grains of paradise is a pretty common spice for Belgian beers. If your LHBS doesn't carry it, they should be able to order it for you. Whole Foods can order them too.
