A spiced delight! St. Gambrinus's Spiced Holiday Ale makes use of a rich assortment of grains to give it a refined malt backbone. Honey, Munich II and Simpson's dark crystal malts combine to give this ale a character orange color and a delicious malty sweetness. Add to this an array of spices, and you have one of the best holiday ales a homebrewer could put on their holiday wish list! Cinnamon, ginger and orange peel appear in the boil, and the spice character is solidified by adding more cinnamon, cardamom and allspice into secondary. A truly enjoyable ale with which to ring in the holiday season! Please note that the spices called for in this recipe, are not included in the kit. You'll have to raid your pantry or your local grocery store for these.
