Falconsclaws Simplified

This is the 2016 edition of the infamous Falconsclaws recipe. The older recipes from 1999-2001 needed additional ingredients like sugars and extracts because we didn't have enough system capacity to try and hit that magically ridiculous 1.140 gravity. Seriously, it's nuts. But thanks to the club's awesome 50 gallon system, we could actually mash enough grain to make this thing happen! (Hat Tip to Kevin Baranowski for the original series of beers)D
