I added it at the end of the boil for this one. I think it would probably be an OK idea to use pilsen malt as a base instead of the two row pale as well. This is such a big beer I think it would benefit from mashing even lower than 150 too. I still have maybe 6 bottles of this left. It is very, very good.

This is going to me my first all-gain brew. As i understand it, I bring the mash up to 122 for 30 min, than to 150 for 20-30 min, than up to 158 for 10 min. What do you suggest?

Would a step mash be good for this beer. My mash tun is to small to have all the grain and the 23 qt of the mash at once. Was thinking of doing a step in mash but haven't decided on the temperature and timing.

Any suggestions?

I'll do a Starter with a WLP 500, planning on having about 3 qt. I think that should be enough.

That's about right. Nice work Let me know when it's done, I will PM you my addy so I can test the brew for quality of craftsmanship.

The key to the amazing flavor of this beer is the special B, C120 and amber candi sugar. When you combine this with the plum/fruit of the yeast you get a deep raisin/plum/fruit character. I only have a single bottle of this original recipe left.
