Brew #12 — Spiced Winter Ale

After a long hiatus, and finally creating a budget to buy more supplies, I decided it’s time to get back into the brew room. Otherwise known as my kitchen.

After the disaster that was the unspoken brew #11, I wanted to simply dip my toes back in the brewing waters and cook up an easy recipe. Instead, my ambitions got the better of me and I soon found myself adding spices (something I’ve never done) to a perfectly good wort I worked very diligently to craft. Enter a cinnamon and nutmeg spiced winter ale.
