barley malt hops
Cinnamon Honey Ale
Category : Beer
Yield: 5 servings

3-1/2 lb Laaglander Amber dry malt
1-1/2 ounces Cascade hops (boiling)
6 Inches Cinnamon bark
2-1/2 lb Raw honey
1/2 ounce Cascade hops (finishing)
1 package Ale yeast (Glenbrew)

Add honey, malt, and boiling hops to 5 gallons of water. Boil for one hour, skimming the surface every few minutes to remove the assorted bee antennae and eyeballs from the unfiltered honey. Lightly crush the cinnamon bark and add during the final 10 minutes of the boil. Add the finishing hops 3 minutes from the end of the boil. Sparge, cool, and siphon into primary, topping off to 5 gallons with preboiled water. Pitch yeast, ferment, prime with 3/4 cup of dry malt boiled in 1-1/2 cups water, and bottle. Allow beer to age at least a month before drinking. As is typical with honey-based brews, this beer gets better and better with age.
