I dont plan to add the spices, unless it appears that it will be on tap over the holidays.

I am actually going with nugget.. I think it may bring a little deeper character to the brew. Mine are 14.6 AA so I think they will be fine... what do you think Pol

It should be close.

I also just did a quick PM conversion and that one came up as follows:

5.5# Light DME (boil 15 minutes)
3.75# Munich
2.25# Maris Otter
1# C60
.5# Chocolate
.5# Special B
2# Honey (boil 10 minutes)

Same hop schedule. Assuming 70% efficiency yields 5.25-5.5 gallons ~1.092.

Nugget is closer to Horizon as far as the flavor you get from the hops. Horizon has a bit of an 'edge' to it. Magnum is also a fine bittering hop though it's a bit cleaner.

As this has aged the spices are pretty much gone now. It's more like a barleywine now whereas when it was younger it made a good Christmas ale. The citrus hop flavor of the Cascades is coming through now more than it was when it was young, too, which is nice. For next year I think I will dry hop it with a bit of Goldings for aroma.

HEY! Sacc..

I thought about this mash schedule. It is a 10-15 minute REST at 135 and 15 minute ramp to 150F for the sacc. rest. How do you feel about such a rest in your recipe?

What yeast are you planning on pitching into this beast? With a slow ramp like that I would add a few degrees to sacc temp if using a dry strain so it doesn't overattenuate. Although mine finished at 1.012 I think 1.016-ish would be ideal.
