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.

Looking forward to drinking it
Fermenting now! Have brewed this kit for holidays past—is always a winner at Thanksgiving and Christmas!
Have not brewed yet
First (and most importantly), brewing this was a lot of fun. It smelled amazing as it boiled. That being said, I sort of missed a step at 15 minutes left of the boil and didn't add the sugar until the very end. Then, all sorts of stuff blew out of the airlock after about 3 hours of fermenting. So I have no idea how this is going to come out.
Also, this kit only comes with the ingredients, so I had a scramble to get sanitizer. This was my second brew, and my first brew was one of the starter kits. So make sure you have everything before you start.
Hit all of the right notes for a festive holiday ale.
