Product details

Beneath a mountain of snowy froth lies the garnet-hued elixir of celebrations to come. A glint of orange peel invigorates the senses, cascading into a full-bodied pillar of Festivus ale. Adornments of holiday spice warm the nose as delicate hints of stone fruit, raisin and caramel wrestle for center stage. Toasty malt adds complexity to the impressive mouthfeel for a comforting, prolonged finish.

Feats of strength! Airing of grievances! The infamous aluminum Festivus pole! This miraculous pint of ale is a tradition for Festivus holidays to come. Its mildly spiced, yet packed with sufficient ABV to ensure winter-time glory. If you don't successfully pin down the head of the household, a few pints of Festivus Miracle will.

Good Kit - a little confusing on the spices - are these added directly or in a hop sack

Good kit, instructions and details lacking

The quality of the grain and adjuncts were good !
The instructions and details could be better .
There is a reference to secondary fermentation, but I could not figure out why in this case ( no after primary fermentation adjuncts ). Also no expected FG or expected ABV .

For those using brewing software it wasn't clear what style to use as starting point ( Belgian ? something else ?) to calculate water chemistry among other things .

One more point. The spices usage leaves room for wondering. How much is too much ?

Still in the 6 weeks I decided to let it ride ... But it tastes good.

Fabulous Christmas beer

My wife reminded me that I should pick out a couple of Christmas-themed beers to brew in time for Christmas this year (what a great wife!). So I picked this one along with the Ginger Snap Saison. This was the first one I brewed. Based on some previous reviews warning of too much cloves, I picked out about half of the cloves before adding to the boil. In retrospect, I wish I would have isolated the spices & orange peel in a mesh bag as it clogged the pump a bit while transferring to the fermenter (brewed using Anvil Foundry). When sampling during transfer to secondary, it was tasting pretty good, but thought a dash of cinnamon might brighten it just a bit more - added one tsp ground cinnamon. Once it was finished, we sampled it and thought it was absolutely WONDERFUL! It's what mulled cider has been trying to be all of these years but never quite succeeded.

Too soon to tell

Bottling this weekend - so far so good. Still about 3 weeks out from truly being able to evaluate results.

I find tinsel very distracting!
