Malted Apple Ice Cream

The cool breeze rolling through Brooklyn today hinted that Fall is on the way. And when we think of Fall, we think of our Apple Crisp Ale (recipe found in Brooklyn Brew Shop's Beer Making Book: 52 Seasonal Recipes for Small Batches). It's a deliciously malty, medium-bodied amber ale with rich flavors of apple and cinnamon. It takes 2 apples to make, but why let malted apples go to waste when you can make ice cream? Here's how:
