Cranberry (Oatmeal) Spice Holiday Ale
Well, a quick namechange for now. I don't know if the oatmeal will come through or not, as I added my cranberry, brown sugar and spice reduction to the secondary and racked on top of it. The color is an interesting deep golden to light brown and there is only a trace of crimson from the cranberry juice cocktail reduction. Flavor is good. Current ABV before addition to secondary is approx 5.77%. This is a definitely a full-bodied beer due to the toasted oat addition. It should fare well with the slightly higher alcohol content since it will be a winter warmer style holiday brew. More to follow soon. Thanks for reading. Cheers!
