What is a good Christmas Extract Kit I could make this weekend or next that would be ready in time for the Holidays and also very drinkable? I want something that says "Yeah, this is Christmas!" when they drink it, but not be so out there that it puts people off. Any suggestions?

All of the LHBS have Holiday kits. Something with cinamin, nutmeg, clove etc. A beer like that needs to condition for a while. Do wait wait too long to get it brewed. I will be bottleing mine next week after a 3 week ferment.

A sample from MidWest on line store. I have not made this one. Just an idea for you to look into.

Brewers Best has a great holiday kit. It's basically a holiday spiced brown ale. The price tag is a little steep (its considered a premium seasonal) at $55.

Northern Brewer has a spiced holiday ale that is relatively cheap. It's based on a Scotch Ale, I believe.

I just brewed More Beer's Holiday Ale kit. Smells wonderful and tasted great pre yeast! It's on sale too like 6 bucks off of its price of around 33 dollars.
