I never turn down a homebrew. So Zamial, I can add yours in place of one that doesn't get picked, if that is cool.

That would be fine. I do not wish to screw with your project and am brewing up a "mixed 6er" of Christmas ales to gift to friends and family (1 per household) They were recipes that were adapted or created to be unique. (Perhaps there should be a "X-mas 12 HomeBrews of HBT" project thread as well.)

Now that I understand the project more and I do not have a decent holiday stout yet. If you send me/post the recipe, I will be happy to brew up the 11) Spiced Bourbon Stout in order to participate in this project correctly!

FYI went back and EDITED my original reply...

Recipe: 11 Spiced Bourbon Stout
Take your favorite stout recipe and dose it with spices. Into 6 ounces of vodka and 2 ounces of bourbon (more if you wish), add:
0.5 tsp vanilla extract;
0.25 tsp allspice;
0.5 tsp cinnamon;
0.25 oz crushed coriander;
1 whole star anise (or 0.25 tsp ground);
0.5 oz crushed juniper;
pinch of black pepper
Gravity: 1.050
Color: India Ink

It's not much to go on so you have lots of room play.

Alright I'll try doing Honey Ginger IPA. But I assume I'd want to brew that in sept because IPA's are better fresh? I might try another too.

Edit: My next batch is my first partial so I want to try and get some brew days in before I try this so I know what I'm doing before I jump in to your project, so if someone else wants to try the honey ginger, be my guest. That's my reasoning behind trying the IPA.

Cool, scruffy. Plus if you brew it later it will keep you from drinking it all before you have to ship.

Recipe: 8 Honey Ginger IPA
Ginger was a popular ingredient in British beers prior to 1850, and here we're pairing it with a dab of honey. Start with an IPA, and brew and ferment it as normal. Once transferred to the secondary, add 2 lbs of honey, plus 2 oz of candied ginger, coarsely chopped. This is a higher-quality ginger than the stuff in the produce section, less pungent and less earthy. I would use British East Kent Goldings exclusively.
Gravity: 1.065
Color: pale amber

I'm can't do the juniper rye bock because I don't have laggering capabilities now. I'd like to switch it for the honey ginger ipa please. Sorry for the confusion. I'm gonna start the saffron triple this week.

Just saw the ipa was taken so I'll just stick with the saffron triple and let others have a shot with this

If we could get doubles or tripples of each beer that would be awesome.

I was hoping you were referring to Saranac's 12 Beers of Christmas, as one of them is my wife's favorite and I would love to brew a clone of it. Heh... Haven't found any clone recipes online, so I'm going to try and wing it based on some recipes for other beers in the same style, probably in the fall.
