I started with my own recipe from my first brew. I use a lot of others as inspiration and modify to my fancy. Researching and formulating my next recipe is part of the fun.
To answer the ops question though, I've lately been trying to have a variety of styles on hand so I brew something a bit different than what I have in a Fermenter or keg, or just what I feel like drinking. Additionally, I've been on a stout kick so have been ensuring I have one of those around.
