Sparge. Add 6 lbs. pislner DME to wort and boil for 60 minutes.

Hops:
1 oz Styrian Goldings (4.2) @ 60 mins

0.25 oz Hallertau (3.8) @ 5 mins

Additional spice:
1 oz Corriander Seeds @ 5 mins with the last hops.

Hops and spice stayed with the beer throughout fermentation and were filtered out at bottling.


Great initial taste but i think it finishes too dry and too hoppy. Maybe up the temperature of the middle part of the mash into the 150's.
