Hey everyone,

I am new to home brewing - just finished my first batch. I was wondering if anyone could recommend a good beginners kit for the holidays or an easy recipe to follow/ website to purchase supplies from? Sorry if these seem like stupid questions, I'm just a noob

The Brewers Best Holiday Ale is a very nice starter kit.

I did the Austin Holiday Ale last year. Really good. I have the Midwest already bottled for this years gifts. It didn't have the spice flavor that Austin's did but it's a good one.

Gun control is being able to hit your target.

If you have Charlie Papazian's The Complete Joy of Homebrewing, his Holiday Cheer recipe is very easy and a very good beer. That was the first "holiday ale" I did and to this day was one of my best brews and a huge hit with friends and family. If you don't have the book, let me know and I will post the recipe. . .
"It is sheer folly to be taken by the hand and led down the path of better brewing by someone who says that they know it all. No, it is your experience that counts most. It is your experience that will always lead you to more questions."
