Spice, Herb, or Vegetable Beer
Beer Color


Apple Spiced Ale has captured Autumn in a glass. Subtle spices combine with apple flavor in a malty, warming seasonal brew. The addition of maple syrup just adds another layer of flavoring to an already multi-faceted beer. Adding maple syrup will increase original gravity.


  • 11.5 lbs. (5.2 g) British 2-row pale malt
  • 9 oz. (252 g) US crystal malt (40 °L)
  • 1 oz. (28 g) British chocolate malt
  • 5.7 AAU Northern Brewer hops (0.63 oz./18 g of 9% alpha acids) (bittering)
  • 2 vanilla bean splits (1/2-inch)
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 oz. (7 g) freshly grated ginger root
  • 1 tsp. Irish moss
  • Wyeast 1098 (British Ale) yeast
  • 1 1/4 cups Muntons extra light dry malt extract for priming
  • 4–6 oz. (112–168 g) pure apple flavoring for priming
  • *optional 8 oz. (224 g) maple syrup

I brewed this recipe without the maple syrup and it was awesome. Will try it next time with the maple syrup to see how it is. I may be a bit biased since I am the one that posted the recipe but believe me, it is awesome and you should try it if you like a mildly spiced beer. This is a great fall beer.
