Last time November 2013 it was Smoked Wheat Ale (just OK), the first time(January 2013) it was Maple Porter see here, I was going to make Chestnut Brown Ale, but I didn't realize I had to buy and roast chestnuts.
I opted for the Oatmeal Cookie version, a cinnamon stick, brown sugar and raisins are added during the boil along with the hops. I also added star anise. Started 6AM and was done cleaning up by 10AM.

|The liquid from the mash was sweet and you could taste the star anise just enough.|
|After the boil, the sweetness was cut a bit by the bitterness of the hops.|
|November's Smoked Wheat|
|Wait 2 weeks and bottle|
