We should do a swap. I also make a Christmas Ale I based off of GL's. It looks remarkable similar to this.

Have you been to the new brewery that opened up in Wooster yet?

I think I may give this a try for my 2nd ever brew. It sounds super delicious!

I went for the first time last weekend. They have some very tasty brews! Got to meet the owner and take a tour of the facility as well! Very cool addition to Wooster for sure!

Supposedly they had a pumpkin ale I was looking forward to trying, but they were out. Also supposed to be coming out with a Christmas Ale of their own that is going to be called JAFC Ale.

I saw that your batch size is 5.5 gal and boil size is 6.75 gallons. I'm a little confused. Could you explain? I have to go to the brew shop to get bottle caps tonight and might look for ingredients. We've been brewing for just over a year- extract. Do you use a mashtun for this? Grain bags?

I totally just joined so I could ask that. I'm in Cleveland but my mom works in Wooster. I just drove past that new brewery on Tuesday but they weren't open yet.

I'm brewing this one as we speak.... I'm not a big fan of super-hoppy beers, so after consulting with the master brewer at Rocky-Mountain Brewing here in Colorado Springs, he suggested a slight modification to the recipe.

For bittering hops - 1 oz of Hallertau at 6.0% alpha, and then for a 2nd addition - put in .5 oz of Cascade hops (at 6.2% alpha) with 10 minutes left, then another .5 oz of Cascade hops (at 6.2% alpha) literally at the finish - at 0 minutes left.

I'm also doing what WWilson did regarding the tea at 30 minutes. I just finished putting that in, and he's right, it really does smell nice. My wife is like his, and doesn't really like how the house smells after I make a batch of brew. So I can only do it on certain mornings when she's at work. I suspect when she gets home and smells that ginger and cinnamon, she may change her tune.
