Default Christmas in July

Here in Louisiana, it doesn't get Christmasy till novemberish. But is anybody else brewing their Christmas ale this early? Got mine in the kettle now.

That's Tmooka nursing an Abita amber.

Pretty excited for our yearly Christmas party. This year on tap, we'll have Edwort's Apfelwein, Baby Boy Porter (named after my son due in October), Mashin' Pumpkins Ale, and Toasted Santa Christmas Ale. Will also be giving six packs of apfelwein as parting gifts. Cheers!

My Christmas ale was brewed last weekend, for consumption in December. Smells of hot alcohol and ginger root right now.

I'm doing Austin homebrews. Do you have a recipe? I plan on doing a new one every year for a few years until we find one we all love an will make that a yearly brew.

Well, my counter flow chiller didn't chill It enough in this Louisiana heat, so I have an ice bath going, and while we wait for it to chill, we're playing online drinking games. It may seem early, but I have to wake up at 5 for work.

Mine is brewed & fermented. I did a imperial brown ale mashed @156 and added some bitter orange peel, cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger.

Going to be putting together a holiday spiced Robust Porter as soon as I have a fermenter open. I love the holidays. I normally bake and decorate like a bastard, but since I started brewing this year it opens up a whole new world. Cheers!

Have you done apfelwein yet? That screams Christmas for me as well.

Targeting mid August to early September for my Christmas brew! Haven't nailed a recipe down so I'm all ears for ideas.
