Bottling Day – Gingerbread Brown Christmas Spice Ale

Sunday, January 6, 2019

Bottled the gingerbread ale. I forgot to take the FG reading. Because I knew that Dan’s brew was really overpowering on the spice, I strained all the spice off the top, hoping it would mellow in the fermentor.

I used more 12 oz bottles than usual, first because I had them available, and second because I’m worried about the spice and wonder if I will want more than 12 oz at a time.

Also, prepared water for the next brew day, with Brita filter and campden tablet.
