Default Which of your beers do you always have?

Which of your beers do you brew ahead to make sure you always have some on hand? Links to the recipes would be great if you care to share.

I'm not quite there yet, but I'm working on "final" recipes for a standard of my four favorite styles - pale ale, IPA, American Amber and non-dry stout.

None of them, though I try to keep a Pale, a Brown and a Porter or Stout on tap. I'm not interested in drinking the same beer month after month.

I'm with david - never brewed the same beer twice. Don't think I ever will. I brew seasonally - did a Wit and some Saisons this summer, just brewed up a winter-esque beer, and will be doing an English something or other soon for the fall.

Ditto, I am always in flux. Although there are some specialty beers that I have at various stages of aging that I need to brew again so I can have them for when they run out. But "normal" drinking beer, hmm I'd say over the past few years I have only repeated one of my recipes (an Amber APA) I think 4 times, that's my personal record.

I have a couple of recipes that I keep in rotation, but I only have two taps. Right now I have a blonde ale and APA sitting and waiting that can be chilled because it's already carbed up, an AB clone and Oktoberfest on tap, with an IPA in primary. I like having two totally different choices on tap, like the AB clone and the O'fest, and next the blonde and IPA.

My "house" beer is a DFH 60 minute clone, and I probably make it 4 times a year or so. That means it's on tap only about 8 weeks total per year!

I think I get bored with the same beers, even the ones I love. In order, next up is American Amber (hubby's favorite), SNPA clone, and then a mild. Somewhere in there I'll make a Maibock for spring, too. I want them all different.

Haven't been brewing long, but I can already tell that I will be brewing a couple of brews fairly regularly. My blonde ale recipe, Honey Hole Ale and my Brown Ale, If It's Brown, It's Down Ale.

In between, however, I still plan to branch out and try to find other recipes that may knock those out of their positions.

Nothing "always" around, but I gotta say that my Special Bitter is really a beer for all seasons, it's very low in ABV (3.8%) but is nice and full of toasty, biscuity, british flavor (my brother said it tastes like a meal in a bottle, it's so bready), but is still refreshing. I think I'll always have that one in the kegerator or at least in a fermenter waiting to go into keg.
