Cranberry Spice Holiday Ale update
Hello All! Just a quick note on the holiday ale. Gravity check yielded approximately 6.03% ABV. Flavor is good! Definitely a wheat backbone and the spice notes are coming through. Not aggressively though, but definitely there. Cranberry is hiding in the background and the slight tartness comes out in the finish along with some nice caramel flavor from the brown sugar. This is shaping up great! I don't think I'll add anything else as the flavor profile is pretty close to what I was aiming for. The gravity measured at 1.028 and starting was 1.074. I may let it stay longer in the secondary and check it in about a week. Thanks for reading! Cheerio!
