Next batch, need input and suggestions
Ok Ninjas (and Pirates!):
I am going to do my next batch in a week or two and really have no idea what style I want to do. AG or extract, or partial. Not really picky right at the moment. Take a look at what I have done so far in my signature block below. With that being said, here are some thoughts but definitely not limited to these:
1. Nice red amber ale
2. Saison (never even had one of these)
3. Imperial Stout (want to do, but not sure I want to wait the time- although now would be good to start for late fall)
4. Guiness Draught clone (although I have no nitrogen)
5. Oatmeal Stout
7. Surley Cynic
(p.s.- I like my beer with alcohol in it- so let's try to keep it above 5% at least, or I could go drink a Bud light):ban:
What about a brown ale? I have a recipe to share if you are interested (AG)
Caribou Slobber was a Brown Ale, but I am aways open for suggestions. What about an Octoberfest as well? never had one of those either.
I just brewed up a wonderful chocolate porter that should be really good around the first of December when I put up the christmas house lights. I have resorted to brewing for special occasions like when the wind shifts directions or the first wednesday after Thanksgiving. I celebrate them all with a nice home brew. The apfelwein sounds really interesting as well.
Tell me more about the chocolate Porter. I like to keep my pipeline open full and moving, but I am looking to do at least one longer ferment/aging brew (either an Imperial Stout, Porter like this one, or an Octoberfest). As you suggest, I want something to enjoy that will be ready just in time for cold weather (which here in MS is anything below 85 degrees)!
I did a Fuller's London Porter clone (FullOfIt) using extract.
7lbs. Light LME
1lb. Crystal 60
6oz. Malto Dextrine
2oz Fruggles [:60]
1/4oz Fruggles [:15]
WLP002 English Ale Yeast
Mine has been in the primary for just over two weeks. Thinking about leaving it there a couple more weeks and then bottle condition until mid December.
