I wish I had more specifics for you... I didn't write down my strike temp and sparge quantity, but pretty much... Grind and mash at a mid-range temperature. Sparge till you've got enough for your hour long boil. Add hops at times directed. I forgot the Irish moss, but this is a really sedimenty beer because of the dry hopping, so I'd recommend cold crashing and clearing with gelatin anyway. It worked like a dream for this one, but it is also winter in central BC, so getting it cold fast by just putting it on the porch was no issue.
