Simmer honey and spices in a covered pot for 45 minutes. In stock pot combine 1�½ gallons of cold water and grains(in a nylon straining bag) and bring to an almost boil for 30-40 minutes. Remove grains and add malt extract and first hops; continue boil for 60 minutes. After 45 minutes add finishing hops. Remove from heat. Stir in honey mixture and cool. Rack completed mixture to very cold water(make five gallons) into carboy. When mixture is around 68 degrees pitch yeast.
