I brew all grain and I have made a bunch of common styles. I am trying to find something really interesting to make. Anyone have a crazy interesting beer that I could brew at ale temps? I only have the means of mashing 25 lbs of grain, so don't go overly imperial on me or anything. I normally make pale ales, stouts and IPAs. I have a belgian style pale in fermentation right now, so maybe some kind of belgian? I don't really care what kind of beer it is I just want something that somebody else found fun/interesting and enjoyed making it for their own consumption.

It's peanut butter jelly time

I haven't tried brewing one, but a Gose might be interesting. Or a Sahti.

Interesting it is mentioned. I did a sahti but instead of juniper branches in the mash I used rosemary branches. Gave it a nice floral aspect and the slight woodsy character. Added juniper berries to boil. And I also just put a peanut butter jelly beer into secondary recently
Brewing up great beer since 2002.

Gose would be fun, though it's better in the summer. I made one I really enjoyed last year.

My wife loved the Anchor Steam clone that I just made. I followed the recipe in BYO but used BeerSmith to modify for Hop Bursting. It's pretty tasty.
