Did you use 1 oz. of Goldings pellets or whole leaf? Why the brown sugar (more alcohol, I'm guessing)?
Cheers, and happy brewin'!
I used Goldings pellets, and yes, as you guessed, the brown sugar is to up the ABV to an appropriate level for the holiday
but anyway, since it's come and gone again, I thought I'd post for you guys my updated version of the recipe for this year. Came out wonderful, and everyone was even more into it than last year! It just keeps getting better.
The best taste, however, will be approximately around 48 days from the day you brewed it. So coordinate your schedule for next year accordingly - brewing perhaps on the 15th of Feb or so.
