Default Spiced Christmas Ale

Hello all,
I tried looking up some recipes for a spiced christmas ale that I want to brew in the next few days. I know its a bit late but wanted to do it anyways. I searched (using search!) a bit and found this good link http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f12/whos...already-74020/ but they were from last year (not that that is bad). Unfortunately, I cant search by date to find anything recent and I went back about 15 pages looking.

Anyone want to post their Christmas ale recipes for this year (or successful last years?). I only recently got into All Grain and had pretty low efficiency (60ish) probably because of grain crush. Something big like a christmas ale I might do part extract to just help it along. Also I want to make a full 5 gallon batch and my current stove barely can boil 3 gallons so thats more conducive to part extract.

Thanks!

I'm thinking about making my first Christmas ale this year (extract). This recipe looks good. Curious - what is driving the choice of hops on this? I saw midwest sells a kit that uses Vanguard bittering and Cascade as aroma.

Also, anyone willing to give me a good extract version of this?
