I am new to all this but I know that summer in Atlanta a stout or barley wine is nearly undrinkable from June-August. I am drinking an extract hefe, conditiong a kolsch-style, planning an all grain hefe and pale ale and maybe a belgin wit for the next few weeks. Hopefully that will be enough for the summer.
The increasing heat has pushed off my plans for stouts and IPAs until I have these others done. I will be brewing these in July.
I hope to get a Bock going for the spring too.
So I think that I have, without planning, moved to seasonal brewing.
On that note, what are some other lagers that are traditional for the winter, early spring?
