Tonight was the start of the Christmas beers! What reminds you more of Christmas than sitting around a fire sipping that yummy eggnog? Sipping eggnog beer! Yes, that is correct my friends, I am making an eggnog stout beer. I sit here in the bar typing away on the iPad as I wait for the final 10 min to come where I will add the last of the hops and some lactose to get a creamy head on my super rich stout. For the spice I have steeped some vanilla bean scrapings with cloves, nutmeg, and cinnamon sticks. This should add just a touch of flavor but not overwhelm. So a few weeks in the carboy then to the keg for some force carbing and this beer should be on tap by mid December. I sure hope that Santa likes beer because this year forget the milk and cookies when you can have beer and cookies!
