0.50 oz               Magnum [12.90 %] - First Wort    
0.50 oz               Chinook [10.50 %] - Boil 60.0 min
0.50 oz               Magnum [12.90 %] - Boil 60.0 min

This was fantastic; like a less-alcoholic version of Sink the Bismarck. I believe I'll be doing this after my saison, using the spunding valve.

JQ - I need some details on this:

What volumes of water did you use for mash + sparge, what temps did you use, what times, and did you immediately heat the first runnings or just leave it to sit whilst you sparged?

NOT 100% Certain, but I think...

5 gallon Mash at 156 for 60 mins
2.25 gallon Sparge at 168 for 30 mins

Think I started heating the mash water right after draining it so it would make for a quicker boil.

Spunded the whole thing at 6 psi until last few points of gravity, then shut her down for some self carb.

All according to my infamously weak long term memory, and beersmith records.
