So I've got a few porters ( one placed 3rd @ AWOG), a pale ale, an IPA, a brown ale. And I can't make a friggin decison on what to brew next. Any ideas?

That's tough, there's so much to choose from. I'd go with something that has water, malted grains, hops, and maybe some yeast. But hey, that's just me.

Seriously, I'd go to the nearest craft beer store and try some different styles to see what hits my fancy.

I'd say brew what you like to drink. Homebrewing is only limited by your imagination. Get creative and see what happens .

I think, given the styles you've brewed, a Scotch Ale, or maybe a Scottish Ale. I only say that because I'm brewing one up on Saturday, and I'm very excited.

Too many to choose from.

I think an interesting way to improve one's skill at brewing is to attempt to brew delicate beer styles. These delicate styles are often light and have subtle profiles that do not mask off flavors. Special attention to detail must be maintained to achieve premium results. Whereas, a strong malt, or hop profile might mask a slight imperfect to all but the most discerning palate, there is nothing in these delicate styles to hide behind. Mastering a light and delicate profile beer will improve all aspects of the bigger beers when you make them.

just my 2c.
