Happy Thanksgiving, which means I’m probably too late to think about a Christmas Ale, but oh well.
Anyone ever use NB’s Mulling Spices?
Here’s what I’m thinking about doing. (Note: this is for 3 gallons)
7lbs Golden Promise.
8oz Medium Crystal (55 SRM)
4oz Roasted Barley
1oz EKG (60 min)
??oz Mulling Spice.
Scottish Ale yeast (WY-1728)
BeerSmith says that’ll be 1.068OG and 28.7 IBUs
I’m questioning how much spice, thinking 0.25 oz? and whether to make it a flame-out addition or add to secondary. – I’m looking to reuse the yeast cake for a slightly stronger Scottish Ale, and am slightly worried about spices bleeding through.
I’m also considering MO for the base malt; but I’m not sure if it would support the spice, or get in the way…
