K, thanks. I thought I remember looking at Walmart, but maybe I just overlooked it.

I finally brewed this last Sunday, but with a few changes.

I followed the same grain bill, but toasted half of the Maris Otter wet and the other half dry (for the same amount of time and at the temp in the recipe).

I used Wyeast 1968 and mashed at 154 F in order to produce a nice, slightly sweet, malty product.

Fermentation kicked off excellently (I'm fermenting around 64-66 F - beer temp, not ambient), and the airlock smelled unbelievably good, SWMBO is pretty excited about this one.

I can't wait to start consuming this goodness. Thanks for the recipe!

I sampled a bottle of this last night - and OMG! this is a GREAT brew! the spices come thru real nicely, but don't overpower at all. Beautiful color as well. Needs about another week in the bottle (only been 17 days) and it'll be perfect.

Yeah, I did side by side comparisons with Dogfish Punkin and seem to prefer this over the Dogfish as did a few from my brewclub. Great recipe.

Did you brew this according to the original recipe? Also, how long did it stay in the primary before going to the bottle?

I'm really glad everyone seems to be having great success with this recipe! With the weather cooling down here, and the air getting a bit crisper, this beer is really hitting the spot.
