You could go all sorts of places with that...looks like it has 28 IBU's to start. I might add a little more malt and some spices and make it a spiced christmas beer.

Hmm, ok. thats an idea.... I tend not to like that strain though :)

I almost always add some more malt, I was thinking some light non hopped (give it body without flavoring it)

I bought a whole bunch of stuff off someone, and this was part of it :) Just no idea what to do :D

Sounds like you're itching to experiment! I've found that if you keep adding stuff, you usually wind up with an imperial stout;) But those are very much hopped with tons of malt. Either go there directly, or try your own ale:D

Add 2# od DME and 1# of corn sugar - if you wanna add some more hoppy flavor boil up some hops in the dme - mix it all together and it will be mighty good :p

Black Ale, Schwartzbier, a few grains & you've got a porter or a stout.

HMMM, this seemed to go pretty well last night!

Used the Dark ale, with 3LBS of Extra light DME and 3 LBS of Light :) and 2 additions of UK kent hops.
