Hey guys, so I'm planning on brewing two beers this Sunday. The first I've decided on the BYO Bad Santa recipe. And I'm looking for suggestions for a second. Fruit beers are out as are wheat beers and IPAs (I've already got those three types bottled). I went to the recipe section, and while there are a ton of good recipes, most are all grain. I'm thinking maybe a lager or saison perhaps. A porter? Any tried and true, full flavored beers out there? Thanks for your help!

Thanks lumpher, I've never tried a porter before...I'll keep this in consideration. Are there any other suggestions out there? I'm all ears.

A local brew store has a bunch of extract recipes listed.
I've had the noble pils and the Octoberfest and both were very good. I actually just brewed the noble pils again yesterday.

I agree.
If you want something a little different, robust, and strong for the winter season, here is a great recipe:
Northern Brewer Bourbon Barrel Porter

A good friend and I brewed this the other day. It's very highly rated, and when you move to secondary fermentation, you actually add a pint of bourbon to the wort! How awesome is that?

Happy Brewing!

To OP -- most all-grain recipes can be converted to extract with grains pretty easily. we can help you or if you take an all grain recipe to your local homebrew store, they can do it for you.

Thanks everyone for helping out! I think I've settled on a porter. Now my options are the one listed above by lumpher, or the link sent by torrible. I think I'm also going to add some bourbon oak cubes. Zandrello, thanks for the link as well, but I've committed to not using any kits and getting to know my LHBS. Progmac, that's a great point and going forward, if I find an all grain I like then I'll definitely ask for help converting it. I'd really like to move to all grain anyway, so hopefully I can make that happen soon.
