Did a little research on the extracts to convert to AG, here is what I came up with (@ 85% efficiency)

9.25# Pilsen (or pale malt)
1.025# C 60L
0.684# Munich 10L
0.5# C 120L
0.25# Biscuit malt

0.75# Honey

I will brew the rest per the recipe.

Thanks for the input.
I entered this recipe into BeerSmith and the estimated OG is 1.066 for a partial mash, which is inclusive of the honey and candy sugar. I am going to brew this in the next week and will post results.

Brewed this yesterday. Smells awesome. Not a lot of action going on right now in the carboy, blow off tube attached just incase. My question is with the bottling. I see it says to use dextrose and vanilla extract . Do you boil this just like you would with priming sugar? Let it cool and pitch into bottling bucket. Also do you boil the spices for the secondary to make sure they are sterile before adding.

You can add the vanilla extract when you boil the dextrose/priming sugar, but I always just added it to the bucket.

For the secondary spices, I just considered them a dry hop and never bothered with sanitizing them. Instead of boiling, however, you might consider adding them to just a bit of vodka and then dumping the whole mixture in.

Awesome thank you so much. It's sitting downstairs right now fermenting. Not a ton of activity , I think thats because I didn't do a yeast starter because I didn't have my flask . I will be getting the candy ready and pitching it tomorrow.

Transferred my batch today to the secondary. Added in the spices before hand just like you would for dry hopping. Added about half a shot of vodka to the spices just to make sure anything on it was killed. It is smelling phenomenal. Nice cinnamon aroma right now. Will let it sit for another week before adding in the 1/2 of Saaz leaves. Very excited for this beer. I'm going to bottle and let it sit until Christmas day. Also I'm going to hide 3 bottles in my cellar until next year. I'll have to make sure it's a good spot so my brothers don't nab them.
