Batch #12 - Santa's Little Helper Holiday Ale

Batch #12. This was Erik's first go round with picking out a recipe.  He wanted to showcase the southern feel by using 12 satsumas (they were zested, peeled and segmented).  The segments were added with 5 minutes left in the boil and the zest was added with 1 minute left and was left until the transfer to the secondary fermenter. This was also the first time we used an outdoor propane burner stand (see pic) - this made for a quicker heating and boil!
