Notes

This is an attempt to make a Winter Warmer style beer that has a kick but will be made in a small batch < 120Lt ~ 30 x 330ml bottles approx. The Apples, Raisins, Orange Peel, Ginger, Cloves and Cinnamon were all put in a draw string grain bag and added to the Mash wort and kept in a sealed FV bucket for 30 hours - Friday Evening to Sunday Morning - to steep the fruit. The Wort is set to boil and the steeping bag was kept in for 30 minutes to extract the flavours. The rest of the boil went as normal.
