Xmas Ale

Classification: spiced ale, holiday beer, all-grain

Source: Issue #734, 9/30/91

I kept the hop rates pretty low given that the spicing would be best with a sweeter flavor.



Use Papazian's Step mash technique: 30 minutes at 130 degrees. 30 minutes at 155 degrees. Sparge with 175 degree sparge water. Collect about 6 gallons. Boil wort for one hour. Add 1/2 ounce. of Williamatte at 15 minutes. At 30 minutes add: 1/2 ounce Williamette, ginger, orange zest, cloves, allspice, and cinnamon. Cool. Pitch yeast.
