I'm a new comer to the world of brewing and will bottle my first beer sometime this week (an extract kit).
I plan on sticking to extracts for a bit and playing around with them.
My mother is coming to visit me by the end of the year and I wanted to get something special for her to try. I was thinking of throwing in some Brewferm Belgian Christmas beer for her to try. I wanted to get it started on October 30th (due to money constraints, the very soonest I can start it is October 25th-only 5 days sooner), and bottled 2 or 3 weeks later.
My question is: does that give it enough time to age and develop its flavors? By my estimates, that would be roughly 5-6 weeks in the bottle.
Or any other seasonal suggestions that can be done with extracts?
