Man, it's been a while since I've posted anything about beer. It's good to be back.

Anyway, I was unemployed for five months (not long by some measures, but long enough) and just started work at a new company. SWMBO and I want to brew something in celebration of my employment, but I'm having trouble figuring out what type of beer we should make. Our last one was an oktoberfest, but that was over a year ago.

I'd like to do something quick and delicious with a good amount of alcohol in it. I happen to have some unopened bottles of pomegranate juice on hand and am open to using it. However, I'm not sure how badly I'd like to do a wheat beer. I have thought of some sort of pomegranate stout, but I've been out of brewspace for a bit so I'm not sure if that's a good idea or not. I guess the last concern is that I like to batch sparge, so I should avoid styles that require other methods.

So, send forth your suggestions! All this employment is getting me thirsty!

From the thread title I thought you were asking for a SN Celebration clone. After reading the thread, I still think it would be appropriate if you're into that sort of thing.

Speaking of Sierra Nevada, I wonder how long a Glissade clone would take. That stuff is delicious.

My first suggestion for a quick turn around was going to be a Hefe.

The Pom-Stout sounds extremely interesting. I might split my next stout and do half hazelnut for my wife and half pom for me.

lol. At first glance I read that as Pr0n-Stout. Might be a good name for it.

+10000! Someone get on this recipe immediately!

And congrats on rejoining the workforce!
Here ya go, use WLP833 on it and let me know how it turns out. Ferment on the low side of the temp range and make sure you do a diacetyl rest to clean this beer up. Oh and make sure you scale this to your system.

I ended up going with the Glissade clone. Brewday was two weeks ago and it went really well. Might be a little hoppier than the recipe calls for but oh well. I'll post my adapted recipe eventually.

Congrats on your new employment - that had to be stressful.

Hope the beer is as good or better than the new job.
