I assume the 1gram of each of the spices and 5g orange peel is correct ?
Im amazed such a small quantity is enough. Ive not added spices to a Dubbel but I use 30g corriander in a Wit.
Looks tasty.

Amounts are correct. The yeast is spicy in it's own right. I just like to accentuate it a bit. Don't want to overpower the yeast...

Was wondering (I've never used it), how long do you boil the candi sugar? Also, could you include some details on the mash. I am fairly new to AG, could you use some pointers. : )

Thanks.

I put my sugar in with 5-10 minutes remaining in the boil. I use 2 qts water per lb of grain for my mash (I use a RIMS). I mash at 146F for 45 minutes then ramp to 156F for 60 minutes. If you do an infusion mash I suggest Beersmith or Promash to do some calculations for you. This will help get you close to dough-in and step up water temps...
