good holiday brew recipes wanted!
« on: October 28, 2010, 03:48:17 PM »
hey all,
  i'm new to the forum (been a member about a year but never signed on)...  and still pretty new to brewing (just kegged my first two all grain batches last night, ipa and a pumpkin)
  but i'm looking to support "learn to home brew day" with a few friends. so i was hoping to get a thread going where people could put some recipes for some good holiday style brews that would ready for the tap by turkey day and/or christmas!

thanks
