Default Briess recipe suggestions

Hello all

Just got my first beer into the fermentor and I have found I really like to brew! The reason I tried it out was because I was encouraged by my father in law, who just happens to be one of the head salesmen at briess. I started off with a brewers best kit at the advice of my LHBS owner so I could get the hang of it with some instructions and such.

So now that I have done the kit, and have unlimited access to briess malt, do you guys have any recipe suggestions that you may have tried using their malt extract?

What is your personal preference? What style of beer do you like? Any particular commercial beer you would like to clone?

I brewed up the midwest cascade pale ale pm kit 10/9. It used a 3.3lb jug of Briesse gold LME with 5lb of grains. It came out amber orange With nice cascade hop flavor. Very well balanced with a bit of crispness on the back.

Briess makes just about everything. So, instead of basing your recipes around what they have available, just make what you like. If you don't know, then buy Brewing Classic Styles (Jamil Z) and make them all. It's the best recipe book IMO.

Briess is a great maltster with great product. I like their website, and I've heard them speak in podcasts. You're lucky to be associated.

the briess website has a bucket-ful of recipes of every style imaginable, and all with their products.

decide what you like to drink, and go on their website, and brew it.

By the way this is what I did. Picked out some of their recipies and they shipped everything to my father in law and we had some fun.

I have since moved onto all grain and have a 50lb bag of 2 row on its way to his house. I believe I got very lucky with the family I married into

Thank you all for your advice. It forced me to do more research into what I like instead of making the first thing you posted.
