Christmas/Winter Specialty Spiced Beer

Description:

This was a very quick and easy recipe; a real plus around the holidays. The beer was rather tasty, although the spices were rather pronounced (covering up any defects if present). The yeast was very fast and attenuative. I have some more of it, so I’ll post the results of that brew.

Ingredients:

  • 5 pounds, light malt extract syrup
  • 2 pounds, light clover honey
  • 1/2 ounce Saaz hops (boil)
  • 1/2 ounce Saaz hops (steep 10 minutes)
  • 25 millileters alcohol-based glogg spice (mix of ginger, cinnamon, cardamon, and cloves)
  • Windsor ale yeast (rehydrated)
