Beer Style: Christmas/Winter Specialty Spiced Beer  (21B)
Recipe Type: all-grain
Yield: 6 US gallons

Christmas/Winter Specialty Spiced Beer
Beer Color


I brewed it around the beginning of November, and put it in bottles around November 11. Color is a nice orange-red,, and the nose is of citrus and spice, bubblegum, cinnamon, and vanilla. After a week the Vanilla seemed a little overpowering, but after 2 weeks the vanilla had melded nicely with the rest of the spices. I tried to make a hot tea with some about a teaspoon of ground Ginger and Nutmeg and added to secondary, not sure if the flavors made it in. Will add them next year in Secondary. Very nice!!
