Planning to brew a Holiday/ Winter Warmer Spice beer

Post by brewfeller » Mon Jul 03, 2006 12:02 am

I am planning to brew a Winter Warmer spiced beer.
I was thinking about starting with maybe a Scotch Strong Ale kit and then spicing that with Ginger, Cinnamon, Orange zest, cloves, cardomom etc.
I was looking at the kit from the price is right for 12 lbs of malt extract included in the kit. and Peat smoked malt as well.
What do you think?
I have never used a kit before but it seems like an economical way to do it.
I just brewed a Mocha Oatmeal stout with just 6 lbs of extract and with grains and hops and yeast it came to about $47 bucks. The price savings is tempting.

By the way does anyone have a recipe for an American Strong Ale? Like an Arogant !@#$ clone? That might be a good one to spice up!
