Here is my hop schedule for my GLCA clone.

2.75 oz Hallertauer [4.80 %] (60 min) Hops 34.6 IBU
0.50 oz Cascade [6.30 %] (10 min) Hops 3.0 IBU
0.50 oz Cascade [7.50 %] (5 min) Hops 2.0 IBU

Hey folks, I've been studying all of the Christmas ale threads on here, I'm an extra brewer for now, can i follow the above and do a partial grain, essentially sub DME for the 9 lb pale malt? thanks in advance!

I emailed them this recipe:
Christmas Ale

Size: 5 gal
Original Gravity: 1.077 (1.000 - 1.100)
Terminal Gravity: 1.019 (1.000 - 1.100)
Color: 12.19 (0.0 - 50.0)
Alcohol: 7.67% (0.0% - 10.0%)
Bitterness: 21.0 (0.0 - 50.0)

Ingredients:
12.0 lb 2-Row Brewers Malt
.5 lb Midwest Wheat Malt
.5 lb Crystal 45
.5 lb Special Roast Malt
1.0 lb Honey
2.0 tsp Cinnamon (stick) - added during boil, boiled 0.0 min
2.0 tsp Ginger (fresh) - added during boil, boiled 0.0 min
1 oz Hallertau (4.5%) - added during boil, boiled 60 min
.5 oz Cascade (5.5%) - added during boil, boiled 10.0 min

Yeast: WLP007 Dry English Ale


and they responded with this:
"You are actually very close with your recipe!! We actually use a higher percentage of wheat and crystal 45, a lower percentage of special roast, and a small amount of roasted barley. We also use Wyeast 1028 yeast. With that you should be pretty close. Good Luck!!"

if you boil honey, it becomes sugar, so its a waste, if your gonna boil it just use table sugar. Add honey after primary fermentation is done (or winding down)

Toying with the idea of replacing the honey with 1 lb. of candy canes. How's that sound?
Ha! you should toss a candy cane in each bottle.

I always add my honey at flameout. Seems to maintain a resonable amount of character.
