Notes

DIRECTIONS

Mash at 154°F (68°C). Boil for 60 minutes with a good, rolling boil, following the hops and additions schedule. After the boil, chill the wort to slightly below fermentation temperature, about 60°F (16°C). Oxygenate the wort very well and pitch the yeast. Ferment between 65°F (18°C) and 75°F (24°C) for 30 days, adding cinnamon at the start and tasting every 12, 24, 36 hours until you reach the desired level of taste, remembering that the flavors will meld over time.

TIPS FOR SUCCESS

Don’t sweat the cinnamon too much. During fermentation with the cinnamon, remember it will fade over time, so it’s best to start out with both the cinnamon and licorice a bit larger in the presentation than you may want. Time is the key to this beer coming together.
