Hmm, did you remember to add the molasses? If so the only other thing I can think of is that for some reason, your toasted malt didn't get as dark as mine did. Or did you use crystal 20 or something in place of the 34L caramalt?

This will be my first beer that I'll keg with my new setup, can't wait! I think I'll add about 2 teaspoons of real vanilla extract at kegging time as well to add a touch of whip-cream like flavor.
This is finally carbed and drinkable, tastes great. Didn't even bother with the vanilla - the spices were just right and I didn't want to "clutter" the flavor with more ingredients.

My FG was 1.014 which I think is prefect - just the right amount of body/residual sweetness to have a solid backbone, but not too much. This is going to be a hit at our Oktoberfest party next weekend, I can already tell.

Has anyone tried mashing this with graham cracker? I was reading some of the posts and it came to mind. There is a recipe for a Graham cracker ale on hbt but and it says mash with two pounds, what do you guys think? I'm making this this weekend so I think I might try it.

stupid question .... I'm brewing this today and have a question about the clove. Is the clove for 1/4tsp of the whole clove or did you grind the clove and it's a 1/4 tsp of ground/crushed clove ? Thanks for the info.

Finally was able to enjoy a couple pints of this last night after exercising lots of patience. This is an excellent beer! So good I'm going to brew another batch next week. The aroma, the color and the taste really combine into a beer that I've never experienced before. Hats off to you again for sharing this recipe.

Just finished brewing this recipe....do not skimp on the rice hulls !!!! I have brewed wheat beer before and this was easily the trickest sparge I have ever encountered ( I only used 1/2 a lb of hulls ) multiple stuck runnings and a slow sparge at best for 2 hours but The wort tastes great and the spices taste spot on.... Can't wait for the 30 days to be up to taste this again. As a side note this brew also hit my personal highest mash eff at 81%.
