ok so from what ive been reading online the best way to go about sprucing up my kit with some speciality grain is to cold steep the grain for about 12 to 16 hours. sieve off the grain and add to my wort in my fermenter and continue as usual.

what do you guys think of the ingredients im using?........some good flavours there?.........right quanties?

any input appreciated greatly

thank you
