General Information
Method: All Grain

Clone of Great Lakes Brewery's Christmas Ale. Also I did a party gyle style(again) with this as well. I have this beer and a...well I am not quiet sure what it is right now. 


This was a straight forward brew day and a standard recipe. The only other thing was the spices at the end but nothing special.
