Default Beer Recipe Wanted... Fall Beer

I am looking for a good fall brew, here is how I would describe it...

Something relatively high in alchohol, 6% or more. I want a light golden beer with an oatmealish flavor with hints of cinnamin and apple. I like to order recipe kits from AHS (Austin Homebrew). Does anyone have anything in mind???

I've no clue, but I'll be curious to see what others come up with.

I've been seeing a lot about a Pumpkin Ale on this board, I wonder if that's something an few Extract brewers like you or I could handle?

Light golden, oatmeal, cinnamon, Apple

You sure do have a good grasp of what you want. I just made this up based on some other brews that I have made. Should be 1.069 OG - 1.018 FG @6.5% alc

5 gallon batch


7 Lbs extra light LME/ or 6 lbs light DME
1 Lb Rolled Oats, or instant oatmeal

.5 lb Carapils
.5 lb Crystal 10L
.5 lb American Vienna
.5 lb American Munich
1.5 teaspoons of cinnamon
2 large cans frozen apple juice concentrate

1.0 oz Fuggle Hops (Bittering hops 45 min Boil)
1.0 Fuggle (aroma add at flameout and steep 10 mins)


Steep grains and oatmeal for 30 mins @ 158 degrees in 2 gallons of water.

Add half of the Malt Extract and start a 45 min boil. Once Boil starts add 1.5 oz or Northern Brewer Hops for Bittering plus 1 teaspoon cinnamon for bittering. Boil for 30 mins and add the rest of the malt extract, apple juice and boil for the last 15 mins. Add 1.0 oz of fuggles hops and .5 tsp cinnamon at flameout and let it sit for 10 mins before cooling wort and transfering to the fermenter.


I would use White Labs Irish Ale yeast for this. It tends to add a fruity sweet taste.

I have had mixed results with apple juice. If you really want apple flavor, I would get some apple extract flavoring and instead of the apple juice, I would use 1.5 lbs of Honey in the receipe. Then I would add the apple flavoring at bottling. You would have to experiment to find the right amount of apple flavoring to add since different flavorings work differently.

When you say 2 large cans frozen apple juice, how many ounces do you suppose those are?

12-16oz? About the size of a can of beer. Remember that this is concentrated juice so a little goes a long way.

Of course you will have to try this recipe since you might want to adjust the amounts for your own taste. The Cinnamon may need decreasing according to your taste. It also might give you more Apple flavor if you boil the concentrated apple juice and add it to the secondary instead of the primary.

Like any other recipe.....adjust it and make it yours.

On second thought, try Fuggle hops instead of the Northern Brewer for bittering. Sometimes it is hard to say what a hops will do to a brew with spices and flavors. You may need something more "Tame" to allow the level of apple flavor that you want.

other hops that would probably do real nicely are Kent Goldings, Tettnang, Willamette, Perle, Saaz.

Mild hops

Commenting on just the hop schedule, using Northern Brewer would give this beer a very high IBU and would probably mask the flavors you're trying to add. I made a stout with NB and the bitterness is steep and distinct. Promash calculates the NB + Fuggles IBU's out to ~54. Using an all Fuggle schedule would put you at a tamer and better balanced ~32.

my 1 cent.
