Just like a 7 lb Walleye needs time to get to 7 lbs. A high octane brew, with spices will need time to mature. Brew 10 gallons. Drink five in December and age the rest out and drink next Christmas. Then, you'll have a sounding board to go by. Use a yeast starter. Experiment, that's how to gain experience. Good luck, you'll do fine.
