Bottled this last night, in my sample prior to bottling, you could get a hint of the ginger and other spices, but it wasn't overpowering at all. I think it's going to turn out nicely! I'll post back in about 3 weeks or so.

I'll look forward to hearing how it turns out.

I'm making it again in a couple weeks. Going to tweak the recipe a little to up the ABV, increase the spices a little, then I'm going to bottle it in bombers to give as Christmas presents NEXT year. It'll be the 2011 Christmas brew.

One of my favorite beers. When I first lived in Boston, they had the 22oz bottles for the holiday season, but everytime I buy their 12 pack the white ale and cranberry lambic sit for EVER.

Thanks for the recipe... will be trying this very soon, I hope.

Annnd brewed. We stepped up the cinnamon to two sticks and reduced the ginger to .50 of dry and .25 of fresh ginger. Used WLP 007 dry english ale.

Lookin here:

The hops/grains are listed there, might help make this get closer as well.

I just brewed this up with my brother-in-law last night! Thanks for the recipe, I think we followed it perfectly but it's hard to tell. This was my first shot at all-grain and man, there are lots of things to pay attention to but hopefully it'll be totally worth it!

Thanks!

I'm glad that folks are having success with this clone. When BrokenBrew and I tried to work out a clone SA's site didn't have nearly as much information about the beer, thus the discrepancies.
