Spiced Winter Ale All Grain Beer Recipe Kit
Move over, mulled wine. This spiced Scottish-style ale delivers an abundance of holiday cheer. A medium-bodied, malty, clean ale provides the perfect base for a complex blend of spices guaranteed to warm your spirit.
Before hops became the conventional flavoring for beer, medieval European brewers used proprietary spice mixtures, and many modern breweries still use a blend of spices along with hops for seasonally-brewed holiday beers. In this recipe kit, we started with a Scottish-style ale and added a blend of spices and quality ingredients to create a delightfully sippable beer with a sweet, exotic spice character reminiscent of mulled wine.

I'm generally not a fan of this style, but it did grow on me. I used the full packet of spices, if I did it again I would use may 3/4 of the packet.
I have made this recipe for the past two years and I am making it again this year. This beer is so full of flavor yet mellow enough for everyone to enjoy. This year I added some honey and it really topped off the brew.
Bottled this a week ago; popped the top on a bottle to taste test and the spice profile is amazing! I let this one ferment for six weeks and it was worth every day!
Great seasonal beer
Not a spiced beer fan so I made it for her and she gives it a thumbs up.
