I love the AHS kits...Im actually moving to all grain as soon as I can scratch together 80 to 100 bucks for a decent 10 gallon brew kettle (already built myself a mash tun)
Ive been browsing around for my first AG kits on AHS and have been looking for a good holiday style beer to brew in sept/oct so it will be aged well come xmas time
have you looked at this one yet? A good bit more expensive but this one sounds delicious too...if anyone has brewed the link below or the special holiday ale before please let me know how they turned out
I made the AHS Holiday Ale last year. Brought it to the future in-laws for Thanksgiving and everyone loved it. Even my mother in law who usually won't drink beer was asking for more. Its a nice drinkable all around holiday brew. Went perfect with Thanksgiving food. I bought ingredients to make up about 10 gallons of this again for the holidays, I figure why mess around.
The recipe looks pretty good. One of the reviewers mentioned that the spice flavor goes away after a few months. I was thinking of kegging it and swapping it in and out of my draft lineup for both Thanksgiving and Christmas. Do you think if I brewed this in September or October that it will still be spicy enough for Christmas?
