I started one of these about 10 days ago, looked good. Already has a redish amber color, hope this thing is ready to keg before Christmas.

cool! have you had the St. A's before???? or are you a Houstonian that got it from Defalco's?

I tried the commercial version of this very recently. Not my idea of a Christmas ale at all. I didn't like it one bit.

to each his own. i'm not crazy about that one either. but, i'm not much for spice type ales or holiday special brews.
