I have a gingerbread recipe which I am brewing regardless, I can use for the group if interested, but was searching for Mosher's actual recipe and came across this list that I thought everyone might find interesting to read.

http://allaboutbeer.com/learn-beer/home-brewing/brewing-instructions/2002/01/twelve-beers-of-christmas/

How particular does everyone feel about the actual recipe? I have a Gingerbread porter that I have done for a few years that has positive reviews if I can't find the real deal.

That link is pretty interesting! It looks like it is an earlier version of the 12 beers list...There are a few variations/deviations in this article compared to the list in the book (which is what I have posted at the beginning of the thread)... I have to say, the pumpkin barleywine is something I could consider brewing in the future!

For those who weren't following last year's project closely, we did have a couple of "substitutes" or variations added in for various logistic reasons, so we can certainly do that again if necessary...

Spencer, I will PM you the actual recipe from the book in the next day or so, and you can decide what you want to do...

It's a democracy, and I'm just organizing things...if we need to make some changes or substitutions, as I noted above, we can certainly do that...

Would love to participate, but with a kid on the way in a couple months I'm guessing money is going to be extra tight by December. Very cool project, though.

And I'm inspired to make my own Spiced Bourbon Stout to distribute to friends and family for the holidays.

I would love to get involved and try to be a part of this. I'll try the Crabapple Lambicky Ale. I don't have the book or recipe, so if could send that to me, it would be great. I was planning on brewing some sort of lambic this summer anyways, so this works out perfectly for that.

bio, thanks for pm'ing the "recipe"! sounds like i have a lot of room to create, which I am excited about. IPA is my favorite style, which is why i signed up to brew one. Just sent an APA to secondary last night. Gonna run at a traditional british IPA next and refine my flavor. As i know that hoppy beers tend to be best young, I should have time to work out a great recipe and brew a final run in late august/sept to ginger-ize and ship (and sip!) I am super excited to taste everyone's beer and get feedback on my own!

Just a bit of an introduction...

I'm a mead maker that's recently started brewing and I'm hooked (mead takes so long!). I read through last year's thread and let me tell you, you guys make some delicious looking brews! I have a lot to live up to, but I'm sure that I can get my spiced dunkelweizen up to par. I'm happy to be included in this and if the person who made the dunkelweizen last year is here again, any advice you have for me would be appreciated. That was one of the prettiest beers I've ever seen. I could almost taste it.

This is going to make Christmas as exciting as it was when I was 10, haha
