Notes

Special Instructions / Notes:
Team to discuss adding cinnamon, vanilla and other spice extracts for secondary.

Basic cinnamon extract recipe -

2 sticks cinnamon, roughly cracked

4 oz Vodka

Soak cinnamon in vodka, shake routinely for ~ a week, strain and add to taste

Chris Moon brought a sample of his Yorkshire version with a full 4 oz of cinnamon extract on the 2012 LA Brewery Bus Trip and it was amazing. A little sweet, but dead on in taste like an Oatmeal Raisin Cookie!

The raisins in the boil may have been the source of a haze that stuck around for the life of the beer, but overall the beer was a real winner and needs just a little extra tweaking to be truly awesome.
