Default My Birthday

So im turning the dirty thirty in march (about six months) and im looking to make a big beer that will be ready the first week of march. I dont have the equipment to do all grain yet so extract or minimash would be great.
I am pretty new to brewing (10 extracts 2 partial mash) so i really cant pinpoint my favorite style so im open to all ideas. Thanks everyone

As a general rule of thumbs the higher the gravity the more aging it requires. So a wee heavy might need 6 months or so minimum whereas a hef might need much less. This of course doesn't account for lagering which by itself takes a while. Congrats on the b day

Do a traditional bock, or maybe a doppelbock, usually served around march, and they are pretty big beers

To me, March says spring, which says fruity and floral, which says Belgian Triple or Golden Strong. A nice hoppy Pilsner would also be great.

True, for me march is still winterish, not spring, but to the original poster if your weather is still winterlike I would make a darker/ bodied beer with enough hops to balance it, if its spring like and warmer I would make a pils or maibock

Mine is 3-5-82...

Not really sure what i prefer. im a beer drinker so i like 95 percent of what i try. Since i have started brewing i think im leaning towards dark full bodied beers, but to me march does seam like a spring time sort of event, although nothing preventing me from making two.

Any ideas on specific beers and recipes
