If you are not force carbing are you going to condition with priming sugar or honey?

I suppose you could do either or even brown sugar. Neither is going to impart much flavor, specially honey. I would go with brown sugar to try to get a holiday flavor out of it. I just went with corn sugar.

I see on the Great Lakes website that this is listed as 40 IBU. Any reason your recipe is at 21 IBU? Thanks!

I assume they gave me Briess Crystal 40 and Rahr White Wheat (they also have Gambrinus Organic Wheat Malt), but would have to check my receipt. They also have local honey. I got whole ginger and cinnamon sticks from a local market. Hope that helps.

I mashed at 154 for 60 min. I'm fairly new to AG and therefor have little info/reason to back up that decision...

Hmm, I guess it needs a little tweaking. I researched every other clone recipe I could find and got as much info from the brewers and put together my best effort. I'm hoping to make it as close as possible with input from everyone who takes a stab. If you have hop schedule suggestions I would be receptive.
