Default What to brew next. . . .any ideas?

Just finished brewing our forth batch. A dipa called pliny the elder all grain from morebeer.com. We are four for four on IPA's or DIPA's. And on each new batch we have upgraded our technique. From partial extract to all grain mash n sparge on the last. From bottling to kegging. If you can't tell, we love ipa's. If we were to change up our next recipe what style of beer should we brew next?

Maybe a barleywine, so you can experience the same(ish) alcohol content, but with taste based in malt not hops.

I like to have a variety of stuff on hand. I like an IPA if I'm eating a spicy meal. I like a stout after a big juicy steak and I'm in the mood for dessert. I'll have a saison if it's a hot day and I just want to quench a thirst. I'll drink a German lager if I'm just hanging out with the guys eating chips and pretzels.

I just love it all!

I am always puzzled by people asking strangers what type of beer they should brew next. Do you like any style of beer other than IPAs? If so, try one of them. If not, either brew another IPA or start buying different types of commercial beers until you find one you like and then brew one in that style. If I asked and someone recommended I brew a Belgian next, I am not going to like it even if everyone else thinks it's great; I just don't like that style of beer.

Read the guidelines for the different styles to see what sounds like you might like it and then ask if anyone has a good recipe or, better yet, check the recipe section of HBT. There are a ton of good recipes in the recipe section.

Finally, if you still can't make up your mind, pick a recipe from someone like BierMuncher or one of the other people on this site who consistently design great beers - look for the recipes with dozens, or even hundreds of responses like Centennial Blonde or Edwort's Apfelwein. If large numbers of homebrewers have brewed it and raved about it, it is probably a pretty good representation of that style.

Good luck ans have fun.

It's starting to get warm finally out here in socal, but not quite saison weather. How about a classic bavarian hefeweizen? That's my next batch.

Agree, summer beer time. Something fruity and light wheat beer or maybe a nice light Irish Red..

You know, I thought about this too, and the last beer i ended up making was a session ipa. It is only like 3.2% abv, but it's nicely hopped and a GREAT summertime beer. It's really nice to drink at bbq's, since it's nice and hoppy like a classic ipa, but it doesnt have the weight to one. I drank an entire growler myself while playing baseball on memorial day, and i never felt full or even tipsy. Exactly what I was going for!
