It's Raining, it's Pouring

It's more like autumn than summer...

So I have dug out a recipe for mulled ale as that seems more right than cool beer at the moment;

3 bottles of a good beer (I like bitter personally for this recipe)
1 tbsp sugar to start although this depends on the beer used, may need more sugar
Two whole cloves (do not use ground! Trust me on this)
and grated nutmeg to garnish if liked

Pour the beer into a large pan and chuck in the sugar and cloves, slowly heat gently to dissolve the sugar.

DO NOT BOIL! It will be foul if you do.

Once the beer has heated up and dissolved the sugar although to continue heating for about 10 minutes and then remove from the heat. Remove the cloves and test to see if it's sweet enough for you, if not add some more sugar the liquid should be hot enough away from heat to dissolve the sugar.

Serve in a mug, grated some nutmeg over the top and sit back and watch the rain outside whilst enjoying your warming brew.
