I've got my first Russian imperial stout (first imperial anything actually) in primary right now. I'm planning on adding a tincture of 2 scraped and chopped whole vanilla beans, a stick of Ceylon cinnamon, and 2 oz of Makers Mark to the secondary in two weeks. I wanna give a bunch away to family and close friends for Christmas, and sit on some for a year. I'm gonna hold off on having any until Christmas myself as well. I had an OG of 1.102 and 5 month old yeast (yikes), but she fermented down to 1.025 in a week! Needless to say this is the most excited I'm going to be for Christmas in a LONG time!

Brewed up a Cherry Dubbel last weekend. Waiting to crack open an RIS, a barleywine, and a face-melting sour I brewed last year.

The PM pale ale I started last night will be ready for turkey day. I'm thinking a red or brown ale for Christmas starting 1st of next month so it'll just be ready & fresh by then.

I have RIS aging, and brewing an American Brown in a few weeks, and then a Dubbel planned after that.

I have a Christmas Ale due for bottling this coming weekend and then shortly thereafter I will be doing a nice Oatmeal Stout. Both should be on track for the holiday week off.

Not the biggest fan of "holiday beer" but I did add some cinnamon to my last IPA I brewed Monday

I never would have thought to put cinnamon in an IPA. Have you tasted any of it yet? Cuz I'm having a hard time picturing what it would taste like since cinnamon and hops are fairly forward flavors.

Reno_eNVy's punkin ale and the Bananas Foster Ale, along with about two cases of Oktoberfest that just need chilling.
