Default 1st brew seeking tasty companion (recipe)

Hello brewers,
I’m a week from drinking my first brew, Muntons Nut Brown Ale. I am about ready to start my next brew, and looking for suggestions. I mostly like dark beers. Porters, Stouts, Bocks, and Ales, and am looking at a recipe from The Complete Joy of Home Brewing called “Elbro Nerkte” that is ready to drink in 10-14 days. I’m not set on this one, though I am intrigued by the fact that I could enjoy it so soon. Any suggestions or advice?

thats weird i have that book yet never heard of that recipe...maybe cuz i have the 3rd edition...if you like porters i would try his anchor porter clone from that book, if you never had this beer its awesome, really bitter, yet sweet, a very good porter...ive never tried the recipe but it looks good.

a hoppy american amber ale would be nice to go along with the brown ale. i like to have contrasting brews on tap.

You've already got a brown ale, why not brew something else?

I did a brown ale the first time, like you, for speed. My second batch was an american pale ale (bottle conditioning now), and my third batch was an oatmeal stout (primary fermenting now). My fourth batch will be an amber ale, from a recipe of my own design, to enter into the April AHA competition.

Don't brew another brown ale, you've already got a ton of it! I'd suggest something hoppy to experiment with. A pale ale, amber ale, or red ale. Those will all finish relatively quickly (4 weeks if you are quick and impatient).

You could, but it won't get much lagering time.

Does that mean I shouldn't. I'm having a party then, and I want some sort of user friendly brew.

Amber ale would be good. Should taste kind of like a brewpub's house beer. Lots of people like that kind of beer.

By "user friendly brew" I presume you mean a beer for the average wussy American drinker?
