# Mull over this!

My suffix is done to stew
My prefix a distilled brew
My infix is within
My outfix makes 10 out of 10

What am I?

Hold on a sec, allow me a moment to:

RUMINATE!

My suffix is done to stew

Stew can be eaten, i.e. ATE.

My prefix a distilled brew

RUM is a beverage made through a process of distillation.

My infix is within

A synonym of 'within' is merely IN.

My outfix makes 10 out of 10

If something is exceptional, perhaps you would RATE it 10 out of 10...

All together, this gives us:

RUM + IN + ATE, i.e. 'RUMINATE' - a word which can also mean 'to mull something over' (hence the title).

• Hold on, let me think... this looks correct... mhm...
