The Return of Peppercorn Rye-Bock

I really like the Peppercorn Rye-Bock beer I have been brewing lately, and, since I killed the last keg a couple of weeks ago, it was time to brew it again.

This time, I found green peppercorns, so I used that. I also mashed the steeping grains this time. I put the grains in 2.4 quarts of water and mashed at 154°. I changed the aroma hops from Liberty to Saaz because I couldn't get Liberty, and I like Saaz. The only other change was that I did a full wort boil. I may have used too much water, since I had to pour a quart or so on the ground, and my initial gravity was 1.048, about 17/100ths lower than I have gotten in the past.
