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 www.windriverbrew.com. 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!
