Default Another "What Next" Thread

I'm sitting here at work, catching up on "Basic Brewing" videos and I've realized that for the first time in about 3 years I have no idea what to brew next.

About a year ago I compiled a list of about 10 beers to make and the last one, an Oatmeal Stout, is sitting in the secondary waiting to be kegged for St. Patrick's Day.

I have no idea what to brew next, any suggestions?

Well, what was the list, so we know what you haven't done yet and offer suggestions.

if you can lager, this might be the time for a bock.

You could pull off an Irish Red to be ready before St. Patrick's Day.

Thanks for the suggestions. I've never done an Irish Red.

Here's what my list consisted of (these are all partial mash):

Belgian Golden Ale
An ESB
An Oktoberfest
An Oatmeal Stout
A Traditional Weissbier
A Blonde
Two Different IPAs
California Common
Apfelwein

Looks like you have plenty on hand to drink, and some in the pipeline. So, I would go for something that will sit for a while. Either some type of lager, a Barleywine, or an imperial of some sort.

Have any suggestions for a good lager? I can certainly find some on my own, just wondering if you have any that you've tried that turned out well.

Unfortunately, I have just brewed my first German Pilsner and I'm not sure how it will turn out. It's also my first lager...so I got nada for you!
