My caramel Amber really turns heads. The strong caramel flavour and low hop profile make it palateable to BMC drinkers, especially caramel amaldenado sippers and fruity drink drinkers.

Have to admit that I love it too!

Seems to be a few votes for kolsch and hefeweizens. I really feel like an amateur home brewer now b/c I haven't tried either of these popular beer, at least to the best of my knowledge.

This couldn't be more true.

I brew a pretty mean Vanilla Imperial Stout. That's convinced a few people to come to the light.

This is one of my favorites at the pub. Would it be hard to make for a rookie?

Not at all! I've modified it over time, but the base recipe was just Northern Brewer's Imperial Stout extract kit. I sliced up a vanilla bean and added it to the secondary for 4 weeks prior to bottling. NB has the full recipe on their site, so you can mimic it if you don't want to buy the kit. Just make sure to slice the bean lengthwise first, and then cut each half into 1/2" sections, then drop them right into the carboy. Good luck!

My lady is not a beer drinker in any way, but she just sampled my Red Ale with me and she loved it. Said she might have to help me drink it up. I'm pretty amazed with it too, and it has another week of bottle conditioning to go, can only get better.

This might be my WOW! beer, and I'm likely going to do this brew again.
