Spice, Herb, or Vegetable Beer


I tried the ale after 5 days in the bottle and was extremly pleased with the brew. The only thing is that it is a little dry (lost some of it's sweetness(maybe another 1/2 pound of crystal). I will do this one again, but I think that I will use another yeast type (maybe Wyeast European ale).


  • 6 gallons, brewing water
  • 5 pounds, amber malt extract syrup
  • 1/2 pound, Scottish crystal malt (80L)
  • 1/2 pound, wheat malt (dry extract)
