I'd have to say batch number 33, Oatmeal Stout. Followed closely by batch number 42, Vanila Bean Porter, and batch number 31, Chocolate Porter.

Me likes the chocolate malt.

As for sharing the recipe, I'll do that, next time I have my beer records here at the office.

After a year of sitting idle, Andre's All-Grain Brewery has reopened.
Batch #59-Kolsch (Secondary)
Batch #60-Blueberry Ale (Primary)

This is probably my best/favorite. I didn't make it up, but it's pretty good. I ended up using 3787 instead of the 1762 listed. Also used a bottle of the new candi syrup instead of sugar. Man is it good.

Poor Richard's Ale (AHA), then austinhomebrew's Rogue Mocha Porter clone. Still working on my Church of Chocolate Brown.

I'd have to say the Imperial Hellfire we made a few months ago (Gawd has it been that long?) is the best one I've made so far.

Red Ale my buddy and I brewed for my wedding.
1 tbs gypsum
6# pale malt extract
2# Pale 2-row
1# munich
½# crystal 60l
1/4# crystal 120l
1/8# chocolate malt
0.7 oz 12.1% chinook at 60 min
1.35oz 6% Cascade at 15 min
Irish moss
1 oz 4.6% Hallertau at 5 min
White labs califonia ale yeast

It was the hit of the wedding reception and was drained faster than the IPA and brown ale
