Festivus Miracle Holiday Ale Extract 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. It's 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.

I was not expecting this brew to be so sweet. I was hoping for something similar to a Breckenridge Christmas Ale or something like O'Dell's Isolation Ale. This is much closer to a Scottish Ale with a hint of spice. I only added half of the orange peel and spice package. If I were to brew this again, I would add the whole package to balance the sugar content of this beer. Use a blow-off tube, as this fermented very aggressively for the first couple of days. Ended up at 7.9% ABV, really nice dark amber color. I did have some trouble with my capper so my carbonation was lacking (bad seal on the caps), but I won't be ordering this brew kit again. Overall impressed with the packaging and instructions, though!
Thanks, guys - mine is still in the secondary, looks like it needs another week. An amazing fermentation, I'm really looking forward to a great product. Love all o'your stuff. Thanks!
Arrived on time everything was great
Easy-to-follow instructions on brew day yielded a really nice, drinkable, floral ale. Very heady on the pour with lots of flavor. I used all of the orange peel and spice packet and I don't regret it at all. Happy Festivus!
