- Product Details
- Taking cues from ancient recipes, this all-grain gruit-inspired ale recipe utilizes fruits and spices instead of hops to create a truly unique flavor profile. The gentle tartness of cranberries and the aromatics of mulling spices work in harmony to produce an ale with exceptional character. The light amber color is reminiscent of the rudimentary malting techniques, while the subtle flavors of fruit and spice provide insights to the beers of the distant past.

- 4.7 / 5.03 ReviewsNot Bad but DifferentI did not know what to expect. Mine turned out very tart and a lot like a sour. This might be what it is supposed to be like. I don't know. It is growing on me though.October 12, 2017Purchased
10 months agoWorth a second brewI recently took a cooler containing an ample supply of homebrew, 2 kinds of IPAs, 1 barleywine, and this cranberry clamor to an event. The clamor got the most comments and had the most demand. It has also disappeared off my home shelf quicker than the others. The hop-less character goes down easily and is very satisfying when it hits the stomach. It's a beer with a so-so start that makes me want a second bottle by the time I finish. The mulling spices' aroma are very fall oriented but the flavor works well on warm summer afternoons too.August 29, 2017Purchased
11 months agoTastes a bit like the holidays... But who cares?I am very impressed with how well balanced this brew tastes. Yes, mulling spices have been pretty much relegated to the winter holiday season... But should that necessarily be the case? This is very drinkable for the abv and stands well on its own without our hoppy friends. The debate, however, is not on its worthiness but rather on what one should pair this with. Dessert maybe? Drinking this is a bit like drinking being history. It even looks rustic! Filtration? Clarity? Hah! Just enjoy it how it is. Maybe with a cheesecake?May 23, 2017
- Browse 7 questions Browse 7 questions and 20 answersShould I or could I use Irish Moss with this recipe? I like a clearer beer but I thought I should ask since this isn't "beer".BEST ANSWER: Yes, irish moss accelerates protien coagulation which helps prevent chill has in wort. Kit has same base ingredients for wort, hops are replaced with spices and cranberries. As side note you might not want to use all of the cranberries. Mine turned out very tart. Mouth puckering...When you say additional equipment needed... what equipment are you talking about?BEST ANSWER: This statement is common for all of the all-grain kits. The special equipment refers to a mash tun and (ideally) thermometers and possibly other sparging equipment like a false bottom. It wouldn't hurt to check your specific gravity either. If you have only done extract kits before, doing an all grain kit will probably require something you don't have yet. The kit itself does not require anything beyond a standard all grain kit. You just dump the dried cranberries in at the appropriate time. This kit is available as an extract kit.What spices are found in the mulling spice packet?
