Mash grains at 152°F (67°C) for 60 minutes. Mash out at 158°F (70° C) for 10 minutes. Sparge and bring to a boil, adding hops at specified intervals.

Halfway through boil, remove two cups of wort from kettle and soak raisins for 10-20 minutes. Puree in a blender and add back to kettle 10 minutes from the end of the boil, along with the candi sugar. Shut off the boil and add aromatic hops.

Chill to 70°F (21°C), aerate or oxygenate well and pitch ale yeast slurry. Ferment at 70-75°F (21-24°C) until fermentation is complete.
