Bandersnatch was AZ's first brewpub and the first pub to get Guinness on tap back in the day. It closed in 2003, squeezed out by the university (ASU) and the city (Tempe).

I'd say somthing that isn't too light. If you just did an IPA, I'd be concerned with hop bitterness added to what you do next. I'd do something big either on the malt, hops or both. Plus it will be Christmas! I'd say do a Barleywine, Imperial IPA, Imperial Stout, or maybe a Strong Ale/Old Ale.

How about, oh... another IPA?

Sounds good to me!

I agree with BrewSmith; you just did big and bitter, so you can't really go back to something smaller. If you're ever going to do a barleywine, now's the time.

Yeah, a barleywine would be perfect, or maybe do a nice robust porter on that English yeast.

Robust porter would be nice, too.

I just sampled my smoked porter from the Brew Yankee Workshop two weeks ago. The two ounces of peat malt were perfect, at least so far. If you're looking for something a little bit different, a robust porter with a hint of smoke, either peat or rauchmalt, is something to consider. You can hop up a robust porter, as well.

Thanks guys. I'm going to start looking into Barleywine and fall back to IPA if I can't get one I like. I obviously am going to have get makings sooner than later!

Though the smoked porter sounds good, it ain't SWMBO friendly and I've already got a milk stout going.

I promised her a vienna lager down the road here, but that's anoither day.

I did my barleywine on tuesday. It shouldn't be much different than a normal brew of you are going to use extract. Mine was all grain, so that's a different story. If you do use mostly extract don't add it all in the beginning. The gravity will kill your hop utilization. Treat it like a normal brew and add the rest of the extract at the end.

Hold on a second. Are you saying you can just leave the yeast cake in the bottom of the carboy for a week before putting a new batch of wort onto it? I thought you had to ASAP get new wort on the cake or all the yeast would die and give you awful flavors.
