Whatever you like to drink of course! It's a little late for a Marzen but it would be somewhat drinkable by November if you start now. If you stick with ales, how about a nice Scotch or American Amber.

I'm thinking in those terms as well.

Wouldn't mind trying a pumpkin spice ale (prolly only do 5 gallons though) and a nice mild stout may be on the horizon.

I love the changing seasons in the Midwest.

I'm planning to do a stout of some sort, possibly a java stout and possibly an Oktoberfest type beer with an Ale yeast. I know, it's not a true Lager, Oktoberfest, but it will imbue the spirit!

Anyone have a good dry stout and sweet stout recipe? Not sure, what would make the better java stout, but I'm leaning towards a sweeter stout to counter the bitterness of the coffee.

Stouts and porter in the immediate future to replace the scottish ales and english bitters I've brewed all summer. Oh and some more of Orfy's Hobgoblin. Robust porter bottled and conditioning for this winter...

Jekster - I have a simple dry stout recipe from the Classic Styles: Stout book by Lewis. I'll post it tomorrow after I get home.

Awesome man, thanks!

I think I'm going to make a traditional dry stout to pin that recipe down then move on to adding coffee for a java stout in some future batches. Or, make a dry, then sweet stout and decide which I think can handle coffee flavors and aromas more.

I'm gonna try my hand at Hobgoblin and a Pumpkin Ale. Right now my chiller is being used so I gotta wait 2 more weeks.
