I am looking for my next brew recipe, I have only done two so far but neither is ready yet, so I thought I would ask this question as inspiration.

I have brewed an amber ale and an oatmeal stout, both Midwest kits. And I hear you on the autocorrect comment!

I really enjoy pale ales, either try out another kit or use a tried and true recipe from here e.g. Yooper's haus pale or EdWort's haus pale

Sweet pint glass! GO DUCKS!

A brewer smack dab in the middle of the Willamette Valley would know the value of Amarillo more than anyone. :mug:

I'll be brewing Caribou Slobber on Saturday as my first brew ever as well. It it's a highly regarded kit from my understanding. I'm really looking forward to it.

The next kit I was thinking of was either Northern Brewer's Dead Ringer (Two Hearted clone) or their single hop Chinook IPA.

Northern Brewer seems to have a solid catalog, great customer service and honestly a purdy website. I would try some of their high scoring kits. Go by the reviews.

+1 on the caribou Slobber kit. Our friends killed us and drank all of ours. So we got another one, an all grain, sitting at the ready. Just waiting on our grain mill.
