I am off work from December 23 - January 3...guess what I am doing?! That's right...brewing a LOT of beer! I won't give out too much information, but know that I am brewing at least 5 times in the 11 days I am off. Here is a very brief run down of what I am brewing:
Wicked Winter Warmer - this beer is going to be an attempt at Pete's Wicked Winter Brew, which I have not had since 1996. It is an amber(ish) ale that will have Nutmeg and Raspberry in the mix. About 5.5% ABV
Ebenezer Ale - this beer is going to be a Golden Ale, spiced with Vanilla, Cinnamon, Clove and Coriander. About 6.7% ABV
Middernacht (Midnight) Dark Strong Ale - this is a Belgian Dark Strong Ale that will be aged on Pinot Noir soaked French Oak (medium toast) and Brett C. About 8% ABV
Old Stock Ale - this is going to be an Old Ale, plain and simple. About 7% ABV
Kaiser Weizenbock - this is my Weizenbock (strong German Wheat beer). About 7.5% ABV
I may throw in another beer or two if time, budget and room allows...may need to buy another carboy or two! One hint, though...one beer that I brew may, in fact, be a LAGER!!
Unfortunately, none of these will be done in The Brewhemoth this go around. I am saving that space for a 10 gallon batch to be determined in January!
