Default my christmas beer

I plan to brew something basic and to the point for this years Christmas beer. I plan to brew this Sunday and keg it around the 10th of Dec. 2 fermenters.

5# Belg pale ale
2.5# Belg Aromatic
1.5# flaked oats
1.25# American Choc

.5oz steriling 60min
1oz cascade @ 20min
1oz cascade @ 10min

152deg mash, 60min

WL 002 english ale yeast


I would like to throw this off a little bit as it will be my Christmas beer. Last year I did a brown ale and all of it was gone in about 3 days. I am afraid this recipe is very bland and basic.

Any input would be great.


Primary:F-bomb ipa, IBS (Indiana Breakfast Stout)
Pouring: 7c+1c IPA, Dirty Seconds stout
Up next: Robust Porter

That sounds like a lot of Aromatic to me. I would go with Munich instead. Other than that it looks tasty.


Check out The Mad Fermentationist for my adventures in fermentation (cheese, bread, ginger beer plant, and of course plenty of funky beer).

Sounds like an interesting recipe. When I first looked, I thought it seemed a little light on fermentables, but it comes out nice on my calculator.
I assume you are shooting for a mild hop character for bittering with Sterling.

I bet it will turn out nicely.

On Deck:
Primary: Hefe
On Tap: Backporch IPA, Rosemary Pale Ale
