This full-bodied ale boasts a malty caramel sweetness that is tempered by the addition of spices that include allspice, clove, cinnamon, and sweet orange peel. The addition of a Robust LME Softpack adds a subtle roasted note and a deep reddish-brown color. A 7.1% ABV adds a warming finish while still maintaining its drinkability.

STEP 1: SANITIZING

Follow the steps outlined in your Mr. Beer Kit Instructions. (You can find a copy of these instructions by visiting our help desk.)

NOTE: BE SURE TO SANITIZE EVERYTHING THAT WILL COME INTO CONTACT WITH YOUR BEER. 

STEP 2: BREWING

Brewing beer is the process of combining a starch source (in this case, a malt brewing extract) with yeast. Once combined, the yeast eats the sugars in the malt, producing alcohol and carbon dioxide (CO2). This process is called fermentation. 

    1. Using a measuring cup, pour 6-8 cups of water into your clean 3-quart or larger pot (Use enough water to cover the grains).
    2. Add the grains to a Muslin Sack and bring your water up to above 155 degrees F.
    3. Add the grain sack to the hot water and steep for 30 minutes between 155-165 degrees F.(You may add up to another 2 cups of hot water to make sure that your grains are fully submerged.)
    4. Carefully lift the grain sack out of the pot and place into a strainer/colander. Rinse the sack over the pot with 1 cup of hot water. Let drain. Do NOT squeeze the grain bag. Discard grain bag.
    5. Remove the yeast packet from under the lid of the can of Brewing Extract (you won't be using this), then place the unopened can in hot tap water.
    6. Bring grain water to a low rolling boil and then remove from heat.
    7. Open the can of brewing extract and LME Softpack and pour the contents into the hot mixture, then add brown sugar. Stir until thoroughly mixed. This mixture of unfermented beer is called “wort”.
    8. Fill keg with cold tap water to the #1 mark on the back.
    9. Pour the wort into the keg, and then bring the volume of the keg to the #2 mark by adding more cold water. Stir vigorously with the spoon or whisk. 
    10. Sprinkle ONLY the Safale S-04 yeast packet into the keg, and screw on the lid. Do not stir. 
    11. Put your keg in a location with a consistent temperature between 59° and 68° F (15°-20° C) and out of direct sunlight. After approximately 24 hours, you will be able to see the fermentation process happening by shining a flashlight into the keg. You'll see the yeast in action in the wort. The liquid will be opaque and milky, you will see bubbles rising in the liquid, and there will be bubbles on the surface. Your fermentation will usually reach its peak in 2 to 5 days (this is also known as “high krausen”). You may see a layer of foam on top of the wort, and sediment will accumulate at the bottom of the fermenter. This is totally normal.
    12. One week before bottling, boil the second empty muslin sack for 30 seconds, remove, let cool, fill with the mulling spices and tie off, and add to fermenter. There’s no need to stir.
    13. Complete fermentation will take approximately 2 weeks. After high krausen the foam and activity will subside and your batch will appear to be dormant. Your beer is still fermenting. The yeast is still at work slowly finishing the fermentation process. You’ll ferment for 21 days total.

    Step 3: BOTTLING AND CARBONATING

    Follow the steps outlined in your Mr. Beer Kit Instructions. (You can find a copy of these instructions by visiting our help desk.)

Yule Like This Ale is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from You're Right, I Do! After 17 days of carbonating I had a bottle start to leak from the base, so I removed it & put it in the fridge upside-down. After a few hours of chilling I gave it a try not expecting a lot since it hadn't been conditioned. What a nice surprise! Deep, rich, creamy, nicely spiced with a good kick to it. Can't wait to taste them again a month from now!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yule LOVE This Ale I bottled this Christmas eve and it absolutely rocks 6 weeks in the bottle. This is a seriously nice dark spiced ale. Good head and lacing just adds to the delight. I will definitely be brewing more of this beer come this fall for next winter. This being my first partial mash and only my second beer ever, I am extremely pleased with this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very spicing I bought this kit and entered into the Home Brewers contest and received a 34 on the scores. Not bad, they said it needed more body but I think it is great. Lots of flavor full body brew.
