Hello guys.

I am brand new to brewing, jumped right in head first to AG and I have my first batch almost ready to rack into secondary. It's a basic IPA (I hope).

For my next batch I would like to do a stout style beer but with a nice hop kick to it. I can't help it, I'm a hop head. I was born this way!

Any suggestions on recipes or which hops to use before I screw it up? I'd like it to be almost a stout meets pale ale/IPA.

. This is a fantastic black ale, hoppy and slightly roasty and at 8% ABV is smooth and probably the best beer I have ever tasted. I fermented this last version a long time since I was out of the country for several months. The yeast was actually the cake off a lower gravity beer, I just racked on top of it. Despite sitting on the yeast almost three months this turned out fine, brilliant even! Oh the DME substituted the equvalent Pilsner malt which I ran out of. I think it may even have benefited from this... Next time I brew it I won't change a thing.
