And what about that Winter Warmer?

Oh yeah…how the heck did that turn out, anyway?

winter warmerWell, pretty good actually. The cinnamon is a bit overpowering though; the drink is still too sweet and lacks the nuttier qualities of allspice or nutmeg. This is partly because I put in too much cinnamon and partly because it sat in the bottle a lot longer than it usually does. Spices tend to be the first thing that fades out in a beer, so at worst I’ve got a cinnamony-sweet amber. At best, I’ve got a winter warmer that’s come late to the party.

Recipe is as follows:

Steeping Malts
1 lb C-120
3/4 lb Special Roast

Fermenting Malts
6 lb liquid Light Malt Extract
1 lb dry Light Malt Extract

Hops
1 oz Centennial @60
.5 oz Centennial @ 20

Spices
1/2 tsp Allspice, Cinnamon, Nutmeg @ 10

Yeast
reused Wyeast 1084 Irish Ale
