sub for sinamar?

I'm brewing an IPA tomorrow and plan to rack a gallon into a seperate carboy after two weeks and blackisize it. My first thought was to use sinamar, but my LHBS doesn't carry it. So, I got 8 ounces of midnight wheat to use. I'm thinking I could cold steep the midnight wheat and add the result to that seperate gallon.
Anyone out there do this or something similar?

You'll want to make sure to boil the cold steep extract before adding it.

Life begins at 60....1.060, that is!

Denny,
That's what I was thinking.
Will the cold steep draw anything fermentable out of the midnight wheat? I'd hate to add it at bottling time and find out later I should have lowered the priming sugar amount.

I entered the IPA and the black IPA into the Clark County home brew comp. The IPA scored 34.3 and the blackened part of it scored 40.3.

Since I did the IPA I've blackened a gallon from a blonde ale batch with roast barley and did a full batch of black bitter with blackprinz malt.
I submitted an article query to Zymurgy a couple of weeks ago about my blackening experiments and am waiting for a response.
