anything with trappist yeast. I keep trying to come around on it, but just can't.

American light lagers, If I want a lager I will go for a Pilsner or a Bock.
Rauchbier too probably, I have a deep hatred for smokey flavors in beverages so scotch is right out for me too.

I'm too busy brewing everything else!

I will say this - I love the creativity and willingness to try damn near anything home brewers have.

And for summer drinking, can't beat a homebrewed lite American lager.
I personally have no problems with lagers. I can't speak for anyone else, but I do have problems with brewing a beer with either corn or rice in it. I just don't see the point. I definitely understand that it's challenging, but I don't want to ever do it (aside for using corn sugar to prime bottles). I just cannot get into corn or rice beer. Give me barley all day and all night.

Sour ales. I've started to gain an appreciation for sour ales recently. I like to have them when I go out on a occasion. But I can't imagine ever wanting 5 gallons of it not to mention the time it takes to make one.
It's unlikely I'd ever brew any heavily spiced beers again. I like to have one once in a while, but again the volume is too much and I get sick of it. I use to brew a chocolate mint stout which I liked. But I got sick of it after a few bottles.
Besides that, I can't think of anything I wouldn't try brewing.
Well nix the Sour beers from the list above lol. I now have a Berliner in primary. Will teach me never to say "never" again lol

HA! Another "I'll never" reneger!!!!

Making an american light lager as we speak........DAMMIT! I have developed a slight penchant for Miller Lite with a fresh slice of lime in it.

Long story, but strange coincidences and making the best of bad situations has made me put fresh slices of lime in um......plain tasting beer.

FWIW, if nothing else, NEVER buy corona again. Miller with a lime is better, cheaper.

Not into wheat beers or barleywines. But I'm sure I could be convinced otherwise at some point

Anything that takes over 6 months to mature. I do not have patience beyond that point. Like gueuze. Make a lambic, wait 3 years, then blend with a 1 year lambic? Not gonna happen.
