Default Holiday Brews

So I officially started yesterday brewing for Thanksgiving and Christmas time. What is everyone planning this year?

I'll be brewing:
Lots of Dubbel (it helps me cook and entertain)
Eisbock
Dark Strong Ale

So mostly high alcohol brews. More the merrier here.

I'm not going to do anything big, I don't have a big enough BK for the boil down.

On my list:
- Spiced pumpkin ale (either Thunderstruck Pumpkin Ale or NB's Smashing Pumpkin ale)
- Some sort of cranberry wit or cranberry wheat, something creative for Thanksgiving
- A winter warmer

I want to do a barleywine but my bk is a smidge too small. Maybe next year

I will brew my American ales at a little higher temperature during winter than summer to give more body to them.

I'm currently mashing my Russian Imperial Stout. Hoping to have it ready by November. Next week I'll prolly make my pumpkin ale for October/November. Week after that will be Christmas ale. I plan on being fully stocked this holiday season. Started way too late last year.

Bourbon stout (already bottled) and a ramped up oaked honey brown ale (10%, bulk ageing currently). I'll bottle that one late September, early October start drinking the two in November. Man I love big winter beers!

Depends on what you are looking for exactly. Check out the recipe section under Specialty or Spice/Herb/Vegetable Beer. Here are a couple to get you started though:

I can't wait to get some lagers going during winter time as well. Don't have a fermentation chamber or extra fridge yet, but last winter I was able to lager several batches while leaving them outside with good results.

I might wait till Halloween or so to brew up the recipe I came up with for King Midas's brew. I did some research on it. Gunna need some extra $ stuff to brew it for Christmas. I'm dubbing it "Midas's Gold".
