Good luck!
OOOH when I lived in MO I used to go to the Farmer's market every Friday. Did you buy the spices from the spice shop on the perimeter (I forget the name) or one of the vendors?

It was one of the vendors - I believe a Middle Eastern or East Indian guy. They had many bins of spices on the covered walk and it may have been affiliated with the shop.

I presume you add water to 2 gallons when you're mixing up your must?

Was that before or after you put the bag with the sweet potatoes in?

The spice shop down here in the Kansas City market is awesome! New to the forum and glad to see some fellow (or at least previous fellow) Kansas City brewers!

What about baking the sweet potatoes to carmalize some of the sugars in them first? WVMJ

This sounds amazing!
Here is my understanding of the process with some questions, could someone correct me where I'm wrong?
Add water to honey to make 2 gallons of liquid.

Cook and mash sweet potatoes (using whatever method)
Do I mix the brown sugar with the mashed potatoes or into the water/honey mix?
Do I mix the spices/raisins with the potatoes or just put them in the bag on top of them?
Pitch yeast and cover with cloth or coffee filter and rubber band and leave for a few days (3-5), stirring daily, and then replace with an airlock.
After 3 weeks, rack and leave the bag/trub/whatever-you-call-the-junk-at-the-bottom behind and fill with dark rum back up to 2 gallons.
Wait one month and then add sulfites and stabilize and back sweeten.
Two weeks later, if it is stable, bottle.

Am I on the right track?
