Festivus Miracle Holiday Ale All Grain Beer Recipe Kit
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.

Absolutely my favorite recipe for the holidays!! Made this batch the 2nd weekend in November, kegged, then tapped on the 23rd of Dec. It was exceptional and ended up just a hair over 8%!!!! Left in the secondary for around 3.5 weeks and the spice level was perfect! Had a few friends over for our airing of grievances and I presented this brew during the feats of strength as we admired our aluminum pole and drank the night away! Gonna have to keep this as a tradition to have on tap each year. Thanks Northern Brewer for an amazing brew!
In NB defense the directions recommended using half to full pack of the spice blend. I used the whole pack. The clove taste was overwhelming. I can't see how using half would have helped substantially. Perhaps a less dominant clove spice blend would be better. As it is it is I am pouring it out.
Decided to try this kit instead of the usual. My Christmas beers usually last into the new year. This one won’t make it to Thanksgiving. Delicious. Use half the spices as recommended.
Let it age in secondary fermenter. Wonderful flavor. Happy holidays!
Hard to believe this is 7%ABV. Malty and seasonally spicy. Almost reminds me of a baking pumpkin pie. Tastes great with dinner. Planning on gifting and can’t wait to hear what they think.
