Spiced Winter Ale

This past Saturday was the Carlsbad Pizza Port Strong Ale Festival, which as usual was a lot of fun. One Ale i really enjoyed was the Left Hand Snowbound, a spiced strong ale that just put you in the holiday spirits. So on Sunday, I gathered ingredients and decided to improvise my own spiced winter ale. Here's what I came up with:

Steep, 30min @160F

  • 0.5# Biscuit
  • 1# Honey Malt
  • 1# Roast Barley

Boil @ 60 min

  • 6# Light Malt Extract
  • 1 oz. East Kent Goldings pellets

Boil @ 15 min

  • 8 oz. Dark Brown Sugar
  • 16 oz. Honey
  • 1 oz. East Kent Goldings pellets
  • 1 oz. Cascade pellets
  • 1 tbsp. Irish Moss

Boil @ 0 min

  • 1 oz. Cascade pellets

Pitched at 80F with White Labs California Ale yeast.
