centuries brewers have presented their patrons with a very special
treat for the holiday season. It is often a brew that departs greatly
from the brewery standard fair and is apt to be much fuller in
body and richer in flavor. The use of special ingredients such as
spices and fruits is quite common for this uncommon beer. As our
Spice of Life name implies we have gone to the spice rack to dress up
a full bodied rich flavored malty ale. There is also a bit of dried
orange peel to finish off this delicious holiday treat.
Spice of Life contains 8.3 lbs Malt extract, 1.5 lb of milled steeping grain, holiday spices, sweet orange peel, dried ginger root, hops, priming sugar, fining agents and a Wyeast Activator smack pack.
Each Bacchus Batches kit is formulated to produce a specific style of beer. Since the quantity
and alpha acid in hops vary sometimes significantly from one year to
the next or from one bale to the next we adjust the varieties and
amounts of hops in Bacchus Batches kit to provide consistent results.
