Default Christmas Ale Kit/Recipe?

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.

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. . .
