Product Details

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. We started with a Scottish-style ale and added a blend of spices to create a medium-bodied, malty, clean base beer with a sweet, exotic spice character reminiscent of mulled wine.

Brewed this back in June/July...fermented for 6 weeks, bottled for 4. Great flavor, well-balanced spices. Next time I do this one, I'll take it back a bit on the clove, just to let more of the more subtle flavors come through. I can't wait for December to drink the rest =D

Wonderful beer
Bought this on sale. Easy to make, and just the right amount of spice. Wife usually likes only IPA's, but she loves this one.

Going to buy this again and again.

BTW, can someone give a breakdown of the spices?

thank you

Glad I tried it.
This was a great beer during Halloween to Thanksgiving time, and because I wanted to try something new. It tastes a little bit like a pumpkin ale. I did not get the big malty character out if it like others, may have mashed too low. In the end, it's a good beer that all people can enjoy and especially if you are looking for something different to brew.

Spice Profile Settled Over Time...
I brewed this batch on 9/28 (primary only) and bottled on 10/13. I used the full spice mixture, and the flavor really galled me until this weekend 11/22. The flavors have melded well and this has turned out to be a very nice winter ale. I am a fan!

I lost the spice packet. Anyone know what the spices are?
Jeremy B on Jul 25, 2017
BEST ANSWER: They are usually close to what is used for wine mulling spices. Usually a combination of cinnamon, allspice, etc. I've seen them sold separately. Check the ingredient store inventory.
What is the target final gravity? Expected ABV? Will this grain bill work well with a BIAB approach?
A shopper on Oct 18, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The target final gravity is in the kit's information sheet (just click the, "additional information" tab). From there you can calculate your ABV; 4-6% is usual for this kind of beer. Sadly, I'm not experienced enough to answer your final question.
How many gallons of water should I use for the 2 mash stages? 7.5 gallons at 153 degrees for 60 minutes, then 2 gallons at 170 degrees for 10 minutes?
Craig H on Dec 22, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I never do the 170 degree mashout - with my cooler system 4 gallons for mash at 167 and then 4 gallons at 188 for a fly sparge. works out perfect with my boil off rate, the 167 water gets me to a mash temp of 153
