There was too much particulate (orange pits, plum halves, etc) to get an original SG, so I didn't even bother with a FG. It tastes a bit tart, but the hops is a good balance for the sweetness. It is quite clear, considering all the stuff that went in it. A pale yellow color. Probably not enough spice character, namely the cloves and cinammon. All in all, quite drinkable, but the taste does stay with you for awhile.



Mash Klages and crystal malt at 158 degrees for 90 minutes. Sparge. Bring wort to a boil and add hops. Boil for 1 hour. Add fruit and spices during final 10 minutes of boil. Cooled to 80 degrees in half-hour and pitched. Racked after 5 days, and noted rocky head from fruit pulp. Added 2 tablespoon dissolved gelatin after 12 days. Bottled after 15 days. NOTE: I forgot the Irish Moss.
