Other than hops, anyone ever throw non-malt ingredients into the mash?

Why do you spice the mash instead of the end of the boil? Different flavor?

I think it lends to a more incorporated flavor and a less sharp flavor characteristic.

Do you have to use a lot more of it? I guess I assumed the boil would drive off most of the spice, this is interesting.

Yeah, you definitely have to use more than you would if you had added it to the boil. Surprisingly, though, the flavor and aroma are fantastic. Not that the boil and primary wonít diminish the character somewhat, but their effect on the finished product is vastly exaggerated.

Pretty much this. Lots of hops for first wort hopping, the odd batch of coffee grains but otherwise a mash is a mash. The rest is added to the boil!

Oh yeah, almost forgot. Iíve added coffee and cocoa to the mash as well.
