-- Use Golden Promise or Maris Otter
--Take the first runnings and boil them down to about 1 gallon to 1/2 gallon (about 1 hour) and add back into the main boil. This will add color and sweetness. Try not to boil down too much or the beer will be overly sweet.
-- Make a HUGE starter
-- This one needs to take a long time to condition
