Hannukah Honey Winter Spiced Ale

Sun Jan 13, 2013 8:24 pm

This was such a hit at this year's annual latke and vodka party that my wife and I put on that I wanted to share here too. Yes, it's extract, and it tastes damn good. I think for next year I'm going to turn it up to a winter warmer. If you do brew this, I'd love feedback.

Definitely not looking forward to all the holiday bs, but winter can't get here soon enough. It forgot to show up last year. And was pretty weak the year before too.

Looks like a pretty solid recipe. Have you thought of tossing in a handful of honey malt?

I think my Ambien was kicking in. Either that or my fat fingers hitting extra buttons on the iPad.

I haven't really thought about adding honey malt. Would you add it to replace the honey or just add on top of it?
