Default Local 12 beers of Christmas

Some have expressed an interest in joining a local 12 beers of Christmas. We are doing this to cut back on costs of shipping and still enjoy the festivities and more importantly the beer. Below is a list of the beers. The one's with the asterix are the ones still available.

We don't have an exact date or meeting place yet but we can organize that down the road. Right now, the important thing is getting the beers going as some of these take time to mature.

1) Caramel Quadrupel- Brian and Harry
2) Spiced Cherry Dubbel- Hernando cap marked with a cherry
3) Spiced Dunkel Weizenbock Option
4) Juniper Rye Bock- Chessking
5) Fruitcake Old Ale- Riored4v
6) Saffron Tripel-Bryan M
7) Honey Ginger IPA- Harry
8) Gingerbread Ale HerbieHowells
9) Spiced Bourbon Stout Sinkman
10) Abbey Weizen- Jeremy
Cheers & Good Fortune

I got most of what I need for the Juniper Rye Bock, except the Juniper berries. Anyone know where I could find these? Planning to brew Saturday.

Savory Spice in the Lowry Town Center may have them. I work right by there so I'll check and report back to you before the days end.

I will sign on to make Gingerbread Ale.

Re: Juniper berries, I seem to remember that you can buy them at a normal grocery store- I just googled them, and even McCormick's sells them. Sure, they would be fresher if you bought them at Savory, but just check in the spice rack next time you are at Safeway.

The Juniper Rye Bock is in the fermenter awaiting temperature stabilization at 50 F for the pitch. O.G. 1.078. I uses German bock yeast instead of the Danish. Should be ok. I added some brown sugar to the boil to dry it out some. Also I just cant help myself. I like big beers.

Forgot to post that they were at Savory. Got caught up at work. But I am glad you found them.

Sure let me know which ones you are interested in and I will do my best to get them to you today when I get home from work. The wife has been sick so I can't guarantee tonight but I will try.



HerbieHowells I will send you the recipe as well as soon as I can.

And, thank you all for signing up and making this project happen.
