Hi, I'm torn on what I should brew next. When I brew next I'll have on tap: a house pale ale, a CTZ/Pilsner SMaSH (basically another pale ale), 2 India Black Ales, and a sweet stout. I have the ingredients for all of the below beers, but can't decide which I should brew next. Help me decide!

The options are:
  • Northern Brewer's Tongue-Splitter (another hoppy pale ale)
  • Northern Brewer's British Bitter (a std. bitter)
  • Pliny the Elder clone
  • BierMuncher's Centennial Blonde

Thanks in advance!

Please use the voting options at the top!

Edit: anyone know how to change/remove a vote? I didn't mean to vote at all!

Looks like you need a session ale to balance out your others,so NBBB or Centennial Blonde.

I'd brew the English Bitter, then you'll have a very rounded tap selection ( which you can invite me over to sample anytime!)

I vote for the Bitter, but if you are going to brew a Bitter from NB, try the Pro Series Surly Bitter. Surly is an awesome brewery up here in MN, and their Bitter is one of the best bitters I've ever tried!

I was actually born and raised in MPLS. Surly came in after I moved away, but I know of them and have had a few beers, all of which were great. The thing about the poll is I have the kits from NB already at home and have the ingredients for the other two as well. I can find the recipe for Surly's bitter and see if I have what I need to turn the NB bitter into the Surly Bitter. If not, the regular NB may be the winner.

EDIT: just checked the Surly recipe and though it looks good, I dont have all those grains on hand. The Bitter option is going to remain as listed above. thanks for the suggestion though!
