So I am wanting to start trying to really nail some recipes and get repeatable with them. It got me thinking what everyones top three styles to drink/brew would be. My thoughts are I would like to re-brew 3 beers with a 4th random thrown in there to break up the monotony (with this I would expect that each beer would be brewed at least 3+ times a year).
My top three (with thinking about still having something freinds/family that arn't as open to beer with flavour) are:
- A Blonde ale - Not too aggresive a style but looking to perfect that well balanced beer, and having something that I can tell if subtle off flavours are present that the more flavoursome beers could hide.
- A hoppy US/NZ Pale ale - On the high end of the scale (crossing into the low end of IPA stats-wise)
- A Porter of some kind - Possibly spiced/smoked/oaked or something to give it a bit of a edge (maybe perfect the base recipe then start putting a twist on it).
I feel like that is a reasonably rounded line-up given the limit of 3 (any more and it would take to long to get back to the begining of the list). And then the randoms would give something into the mix - IPA, IIPA, Kolsh, Saison, Berliner Wiess, etc.
So what would you guys do?
