What I need is this: do any of you have a fool-proof, forgiving recipe that you tend to go back to because you know it will always turn out good?
Why are you slumping? What's up?
My recent slump started with my oatmeal stout. I figured out it was because of the water here.
My favorite slumpbuster recipe is a pale ale. I have good luck with those so I do that when I need some confidence.
What have you done well? Do it again, no matter if you are in the mood for it right now or not.
