i have learned that the style guidelines are my friend, at least as a noob.

i make sure that i plop my beer calculations right in the middle of the various ranges.

at some point in the future when i am much better at this, i may venture out again, but a couple really nasty brews taught me a lesson.

Oh yeah. Makes a good mop sauce too. The Cooper's International Series English bitter was good with their 500g box of plain light DME & 1oz German Haulertaur hops split at 20 & 10 minutes. Made a nice sessionable ale that was crystal clear & malty dark goodness. See it in my gallery.

Thanks for the pairing advice. I regularly make BBQ brisket (smoked for 12+ hours), so I'll have to have a BBQ once this batch is ready. Of course that will be sometime in January when the temps are likely to be in the 30's.

omg... i live in chicago, and i do ALL the major holiday meals on the grill (T-day, christmas, new years, and easter).

the only time i have trouble is when the winter wind gets to be really howling, which in chicago is a handful.

neighbors all think i'm nuts, but i eat well (and now i drink well).

The style guidelines are as important or unimportant as you want them to be. If you are interested in creating a certain recognizable beer type, the style guidelines will help you figure out how to get there. But if you decide that your favorite beer is a dark, smoked no-hop porter flavored with peaches and sauerkraut, that might not fit into any of the BJCP styles (Cat 23?) but if it makes you happy then brew it.

I personally like pretty standard beer profiles so I find myself staying mostly within the BJCP guidelines, but there's no reason to see them as gospel. Do what feels right.

Cheers
