Title: Christmas/Holiday Beer Gifts
Post by: phillamb168 on December 24, 2010, 02:07:09 PM
I did a Tripel for my mother-in-law, whose name I drew for the family Secret Santa. This was the same beer that I posted about earlier with a cough syrup flavor. Tried it this morning and (thankfully!) the cough syrup flavor is almost gone. It pours a beautiful copper color and has a nice bit of Coriander flavor. Here's a shot of the label I did on the 50cl bottles I used. Anybody else do something similar? Merry Christmas!

I gave my dad a whole 5gal batch for Christmas.  I normally do labels for my beers (or at least design one) but I was lazy.  It was brewed, fermented, and bottled all within 1 week.  It was a 3.5% stout.  It was duly named "Short Stack".  Besides being a little thin for a stout, it's got great flavor and you can drink a bunch of em.

He couldn't make up his mind about what he wanted.  I kept telling him, "you gotta let me know what you want".  He didn't get back to me until I said that today was the absolute threshold and I needed to brew.

I think he likes giving me a challenge.
