Notes

Second yeast packet is Danstar Nottingham (11g) to ensure adequate cells for high alcohol fermentation.

Priming 1 gallon with Maple Sugar, which is 90% sucrose. Corn sugar is 91% dextrose so they are interchangeable for priming calculations

Spices added 1 minute prior to flame-out
Remained in wort during chilling.

Replaced Turbinado sugar with Demerara
sugar.

Adjusted spice amounts and boil times, original amounts of spice in recipe were out of balance.
