Let's hear what everyone has planned for the change of seasons. Styles, recipes, experiments - anything you've been planning for the fall.

For me, it's a oatmeal stout (I already have a dark a$$ doppelbock going). The intention is to get something that has a nice slightly sweet, smooth oatmeal flavor - reminiscent of fresh baked oatmeal raisin cookies.

Batch size: 5.25 gallons
OG: 1.056

7# Maris Otter
1.5 # Flaked Oats (toasted in oven for 20 min @250 dF)
8oz. crystal 40L
8oz. crystal 120L
8oz. roasted barley
8oz. American chocolate
8oz. flaked barley

1 oz. EKG @ 60 and 30 min

I have always wanted to try experimenting with toasted oats, this seems like the perfect time to do so.
I also am considering adding about a cup of baked dark raisins. I think I'll bake them @ 300 dF until they get slightly caramelized/burned then chop or mash them. Sanitize in some bourbon and add to the secondary.
I still haven't decided on what yeast I'll use.
Any thoughts or suggestions are welcome.

So, what are you all thinking about for the cooler weather brews?

Looks and sounds pretty tasty!

I have more brews in mind than I have time to brew. First up is another batch of Thunderstruck Pumpkin Ale (see the database). Then, in no particular order, a Scottish 80/-, a wit, and another attempt at the Czech Six lager recipe that flopped earlier this year due to crappy yeast. If I have time, perhaps I'll get something special going for Christmas, but I haven't decided on a recipe yet.

hmm. you must mean clove instead of clover?

Aren't you worried that the orange peel will clash with the spice flavors? Maybe use cascade or amarillo instead of adding any citrus.
I'd like to try a spiced brew as well, but I just don't have enough fermentation space for "non-quaffable" brews like spiced beers. I think I'm going to pick up some 3 gal carboys to try some stuff like that, though.

Pumpkin Ale for Thanksgiving.

Then probably some APAs and IPAs now that the temperature is down and I can avoid those nasty fusels.

I'm waiting on a New Old Ale kit (AG) to arrive from NB. I took advantage of their $5.99 shipping and decided to get a few things. Also thinking of making an AG Oatmeal Stout.

A Chocolate Oatmeal Stout, A Brown Ale (since my first one failed), A Chili Pepper Ale, and a couple of Meads as well.
