Gingerbread Brown

Gingerbread Brown

We came up with this recipe while looking for inspiration to brew something up for the winter holidays. We followed the recipe for the Old Nut Case Brown Ale on page 92 of Radical Brewing and added the seasonal Gingerbread Ale spices as described on page 169.

This is an odd one. Smells like ginger. Really bubbly…almost dirty or grimey…mouthfeel. Not sure how I feel about this one yet.
