Here's one that I've shared and has gotten favorable comments.



Prepare yeast starter. Crush specialty grains and steep for 15 min. Add LME, brown sugar, and bittering hops and begin boil. At 30 min, add honey, cinnamon, cardamom and ginger. At 15 min, add Irish moss, flavoring hops, honey, and orange zest. Cool, aerate and pitch yeast. Ferment at 70-74^F. Rack to a secondary after 7 days and store at 70^F. After another 14 days, bottle beer.
