Default Anchor Steam Christmas ales clone recipes?

I havent had it for many years, but I know they used to have a new recipe every year. Is it concievable that I could find recipes based on each year? the 1989 & 1990 ones were my all-time favorites hands down!

the one in Beer's Captured is from the mid 90's I think. So, not that I know of. The one in Beer's Captured is a mighty fine brew, though.

I am fermenting the 1995 recipe that I got for Beer Captured. It has been in my secondary for 3 weeks now. I am thinking of bottling it this weekend or the following weekend. I don't have my notes with me right now to post up the recipe.

That will be a popular brew. Are you giving it away for gifts or is it more personal?

It'll be a hit. you'll be glad you started this early as the flavors need time to mellow. I wish I already had mine going...

I think it will be a good beer come Christmas time. I am a little worried it isn't going to be fully ready by Thanksgiving. So I am planning on starting it in early Aug or late July next year.

I been searching all over for an Anchor Christmas Clone (any year) and found thread. The receipe listed here is for 2.5g, does anybody know how to adjust for 5g? I was considering just doubling everything, but that seems like a lot of extract. Maybe double everything except that?

I'm fairly new to brewing and I've pretty much stuck with extract kits with minor modifications, so thanks for any help.

Given the malt amount and OG, it has to be 2.5 gallon boil volume for a 5 gallon batch. They just didn't mention the top off water. In other words, don't double anything and make it as is.
