Kind of a newb here (brewed two successful extract + steeping grains recipes so far).
A little late to the game perhaps but I was hoping to throw together a simple ale for Thanksgiving. Looking for something with a subtle spice flavor and not too elaborate to make. After doing some research on the boards I have come across this spice combination a few times (originally submitted by "the Pol"):
2 tsp cinnamon
1 bsp allspice
1 tsp ginger
Does this sound like it will achieve what I am looking for?
Now second my question is for the ale itself. My favorite style is a semi-hoppy amber ale, but I was thinking maybe a scottish style brown ale or American brown might be nice with the spices. Or do you think an amber would be recommended and perhaps just tone down the hops a bit (I have a great recipe based on Ballast Point Calico Amber I could use as a base).
Going to need to carb it in the bottle so in that case should I just aim for a faster to brew style, if there is a difference?
Thanks in advance for your input!
