Winter-time here in New Hampshire is COLD. Low last year was -30 and I live in a cabin 30 minutes from town so tend to get snowed in a few days a year. We love our beers up here in the country so I'm thinking of doing a few special brews.
I know big "warming" beers are preferred in the winter so, what styles should I brew, what spices and christmas-like additions should I do? Any recipes out there specifically targeted to cold winter post-skiing weather?
I imagine if I'm going to drink in November, I should brew these all in late August, right? Especially if they are higher ABV beers.
