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?

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/
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.

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
