I know we've had similar threads to this, but I wanted to revisit it. Most of us that have been brewing a while have at least one (or more) recipes that we've perfected to the point that we try to keep it on tap most of the time. Just because it's something we really like, or our friends and family urge us to brew, what have you. So, I'm asking; what is the beer you brew the most, that you try to keep on tap at all times? Recipes welcome of course! For me it's a WF lager, usually done with about 80/20 Pilsner/Two row, and as close to European hops as I (and my pocketbook) can afford. I try to keep the ABV in the 5-7% range, although the latest got up to 8% because reasons. I really like Tettnanger as a bittering hop, and usually some version of Hallertau (either Mittelfruh or Blanc, or if I don't have that, Crystal which is the American version) late but never at flameout, because I don't know, and fermented warm (don't hate me) on S23. Done right, it's a great refreshing lager, with enough maltiness & kick to let you know it's more than something piss-yellow from the corner store. Thoughts?
