Taste Notes

2 weeks after boil. 1 week in primary and 1 in secondary. Kegged and in the fridge. Has a great aroma and after taste, perfect. However theres a strong new beer astringency that ruins it. Hope this goes away with some rest. Wait a month and taste it again. Assuming the new beer flavor goes away… The oats are not comming through as much as Id like and needs more of a toasted flavor. Next time try better oats with more toasting. Rather than quaker oats from the grocery. Also, for a less xmas style, get rid of the nutmeg and cloves from the spice extract. Might also try adding maple syrup at flame out. **Update** Been almost 4 weeks since brewday. New beer bitter is gone, this beer is amazing!!! Making a not Xmas version this weekend. Plan to reduce bitterness, remove nutmeg and cloves, add maple syrup, use better flaked oats from brew shotp and toast the oats to a medium rather than light brown (90mins@350?). Important to let the oats air out for a few days before brew day.

Notes

For the holiday flavor add the following in a small bottle of burbon (Wild Turkey 81) at brew time, then add to the beer at kegging/bottling. Holiday Spice Extract --- 12.00 Oz Bourbon 1 Tsp Cinnamon (cinnamon stick?) 0.5 Tsp Nutmeg 0.5 Tsp Cloves 2.00 Unit(s)Vanilla Bean
