Default What are you drinking and loving? I need some brewing ideas!

What's up guys? I've brewed A LOT in the past year, and don't have really that many styles that I haven't made. I've got a $100 AustinHomebrew.com gift card in my pocket, and it's burning a dang hole straight through my leg. I'm thinking I'm going to make a berry wheat, but other than that, I don't know what I want to make.

Ideas? Suggestions?

Also, I want to make a oak brown ale, but does that sound very good?

Thanks,
Jacob

Currently enjoying a case of Magic Hat #9's. I think AHB has a clone kit that sounds downright fantastic.

Holy crap, where do I start. I swear to god I have so many recipes on the "to-brew" list that I rarely know where to begin. My next two beers are:

Pumpkin Ale - http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f76/samh...in-ale-140674/
and a
Christmas Ale - http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f78/holi...ced-ale-89603/

Both of those need a bit of time to age, so they will be ready come Halloween and Thanksgiving. Also, since Winter is Coming,

Choconut Porter - http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f126/choconut-porter-54159/
and
Caramel Cream Ale - http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f12/cara...tml#post398005

They are all amazing recipes and will get you through the winter in one piece.

depends on what kind of beer you like to drink? I like guiness and just made a great recipie through midwest supplies... If I had that gift card I would search what that company has for a good irish stout kit... Or a good pale ale, cream ale, haha I could go on for days... Whatever you end up getting I'm sure it will be good!

I recently rediscovered Anchor Steam. Great beer. Just brewed a man-sized batch. My first beer with Northern Brewer hops.

I've got a Maris Otter/Cascade SMaSH on tap to brew this weekend. Then my porter. Not sure after that. Maybe a nice IPA before the porter.. then the porter will be nice and ready for winter.

Over the summer I've enjoyed my Oatmeal Chocolate Stout, Orfy's Northern English Mild and Orange Cascades APA. Those also seem to be visitors top 3 favorite also.

A hunnerd' bones could make you one hell of a barley wine!

I recently tasted my first Kolsch (reissdorf) and really liked it! Great for these hot summer days. I'll probably end up brewing some of that eventually
