Default Gimme some good extract ideas

I just finished my first brew (amber ale) using Bierkeller liquid extract and it all came out perfect.

I need ideas for my second beer.

Ideally i would like to do a lighter beer this time but I do not have the ability to Lager, so this beer will have to ferment in the 65-75 degree range.

Gimme some ideas.
I love hefeweizen's and mexican style beers...Im open to ideas

I think you should look at hefeweizen or Mexican style beer recipes.

I agree, if you like them then Mexican style and hefeweizen are definatley worth a go.
I wouldn't bother if you don't like them though.
I do the beer I like, never bothered with the ones I don't.
I find the beer more enjoyable to drink that way.

You should brew 10 different, subtly distinct, batches of Orfy's Hobgoblin.

Hey, that's what Orfy's doing with his Maris Otter and Fuggles. What's good for the goose is good for the gander, right? Right?

OK, I know you guys are playing with the noob but I think he might actually try a mexican style lager if he knew that you can make a reasonable lager copy using a Neutral ale yeast.

shok: check the recipe section. Use a neutral ale yeast (saf 05, nottingham, etc) if you want to try a lager style. A hefe requires a hefe strain though. So you need wyeast or whitelabs yeast strain for that. ie http://www.wyeastlab.com/rw_yeaststr...ail.cfm?ID=135

hey I just did an extract hef that came out amazing. It was as follows: 6lb alexanders wheat extract, 4oz caramunich I(steeping grains), 0.5oz fuggles(5%) for 60 min, and pitched a tube of whitelabs german hef IV, and a tube of whitelabs belgian wit(because they only had 1 german hef tube) The resulting hef is outstanding and loved by many. Its good and inexpensive to put together.

Mexican beers (Tecate, Carta Blanca, Dos Equis, Negro Modelo, etc.) are vienna lager style beers so you might want to try some wheats until you can lager.
