    My Christmas Ale

    Post by reim0027 on Sat Dec 22, 2012 5:20 pm

    So, 6 weeks ago, I made a batch of ale. It is about 9% alcohol and spiced like pumpkin pie. It is very malty and sweet. I kegged it 2 weeks ago (after letting it stew in the spices) and carbonated it. I just tasted it . . . tastes awesome! Sweet, warming, and deceptive (I don't feel it until I stand up).

    I'm also going to make some home made eggnog for this weekend too.

    Looking to be a fun time: 5 gallons of homemade fresh kegged beer and 24 servings of home made fresh eggnog.

    That sounds awesome, too bad I don't like beer.

    I like Ginger Ale, but not after it's been sitting out for a while.

    Amos - sounds like fun (all of it silly ). I also got a nice cab to add to the yule. Now, my problem is waiting until tomorrow when I can cork/tap/ladle them. There is a good chance that when I log onto DkS that I'll be seeing 2 of everything! Joy

    Beer turned out great. Very potent, but tasty. On a side note, I installed a tap into my fridge. And, I installed a port to keep my CO2 tank outside it. Very excited.

    Spoiler:

    Spoiler:

    The fridge is cracked because it is cold enough in my garage to not have my fridge turned on. If it isn't on, then I leave the door open to prevent mold formation.

    I will be installing a second tap in the near future so I can have a soda on tap at the same time.

    Sure, it is a crappy fridge and a basic tap. But, I don't care. I'm excited to pour my beer from the tap. Hurrah

    I'm on my second pint. Well, maybe third. And, this stuff is about 9%. I'm still a bit stoked.

    EDIT: I'm slightly buzzed (well, a bit more than slightly), and trying soooooooo hard to stay within the posting guidelines.

    On my 5th pint. Prolly stop after this. Lips are starting to go numb (the sign where I'm officially crossed the buzzed-drunk line). LOL at the awesome PvP for me tonight!

    Free souls for the hosts!!!

    You probably should stop after that.. you've consumed almost 3 Litres of 9%...

    So thats just over two thirds of a litre bottle of 40%, just to whack it into perspective, and thats around 25 units of alcohol....

    I confess, i'd have lost a lot of my memory of the night if I had that much lol!

    O, god. Please don't let me be hung over for work! I've worked with food poisoning before. It was not pleasant.

    Finish my pint and it is water for me the rest of the night.
