So this is my 1st attempt at building a recipe and look to brew this this weekend to have ready for a mid-July party.
If you have any feedback on the recipe, please let me know.
Before anyone asks or suggests, I am not big on a lot of spice in my Christmas ales, but I am considering adding 1 stick of cinnamon and 1/2 a Tbsp of coarse nutmeg at 15 min.
