My favorite brew so far is also my first all grain. It is a Vienna/Northern Brewer SMaSH.

5 gallon recipe:
10lbs Vienna malt mashed at 152F
1oz NB at 60 min
1oz NB at 20 min
.5oz NB at 15 min
.5oz NB at 10 min
1oz NB at 5 min

Fermented with US-05 at 64F.

It is smooth and complex with lots of hop flavor that compliments the strong flavor of the Vienna malt. Each one is better than the rest and will probably wind up being my house APA.

Just tapped a keg of my newest IPA creation. It is incredible. The brewday was a disaster, but the beer turned out beyond amazing. Until this beer, I hadn't ever made a beer I was 100% happy with, that I thought could really compete against the commercials, but I think it's the best beer I've ever tasted, let alone brewed. This will be one of the core beers at Two Kids. It's a good feeling.

I wanted to make it alittle differnet so used 80L crystal and .75# of special roast instead of only a half pound.

I also changed up the hops and used the following schedule:

1 oz Magnum 17% - 60 min.
1 oz Cascade 7.9% - 45 min.
1 oz Fuggles 5.2% - 15 min.
1 oz Cascade 7.9% - 0 min.

Dry hop 1 oz cascade for 7 days.

And used nottingham instead of 05.

Came out amazing. Huge aroma up front, the first sip is amazingly roasty, but then the bitterness and hop flavor comes in. It was a hit, even with people that don't like hoppy beers.
Sounds similar to the BIPA I mentioned right above you. Try Chinook sometimes if you feel like experimenting with your recipe. The piney aroma of Chinook on top of those dark malts reminds me of pine tar (stuff you put on a baseball bat for grip). In a good way of course

I also used Nottingham for my BIPA. I love that yeast. I love how it really lets all of the malts and hops you put into the beer come out in full force and doesn't get in the way.
