Homebrewing: What to brew next?


So what's on your upcoming brew list?

I've been brewing kits, so now it's time to formulate my own recipe's. I also want to brew beer's that some of the lesser craft enthusiasts can enjoy and one's i enjoy simultaneously. I'm having trouble deciding what to brew my next batch. Most likely a simple APA with a little more malt backbone, probably more similar to an english bitter, with the malt characteristics, but using american hops.

After that, by request, i will be brewing a blackberry wheat ale. I brewed one last year and everyone loved it. Last year, however, i was doing extract and used a kit from Austin homebrew. This one will be all-grain and my own recipe.

What's on your upcoming brew list?

ETA: And i completely forgot about the homebrew club meeting yesterday when i got home from work, dammit...

I have most of the ingredients on hand for a 10-gallon batch of saison... also an imperial stout kit from Brewstock.

I think if I get to brew this weekend I'm going to go for the stout kit and then barrel age it for a while.

I think Sunday will comprise of either the big Imperial Stout for our big Jack Daniel's barrel project, or rebrew my American Amber recipe. Have a good amount of beer at the house, so this is just to do some brewing, not as a necessity.

Same, about to have all 4 taps running plus the Iron Brewer batch in secondary.

That's why I'm thinking the stout, so I can barrel age it for a while. I'm in no need of more beer besides that.

I am completely stocked with beer right now, which sucks because i want to brew again. I do have a case of old extract brews from early last year i could dump or give away, but it just feels wrong to do so.

I can really tell a huge difference in my all-grain vs. extract brews.

I'll still be with Bicycle Brew Club. I don't ever make it up for meetings anymore, but I come up for special events.

Awesome, I wasn't sure if you still did that. I havent heard much from them recently, looked at the website yesterday and there was not much there. But then again, I havent really updated our website that much either.

I think my next will be the AHS Greenbelt Porter kit. Well, the little lady will be brewing it. I got her the kit for Xmas. She brewed another kit some time ago and wants to give it another go.

Going to brew an APA this weekend and then follow that up with an AIPA the next weekend. I have a pound of Simcoe and Citra to use.

Yeah... unfortunately the one I have in secondary now for our Iron Brewer batch stalled out. I might get a heat lamp and see what I can do.

In looking at some competition timelines, I will probably brew the American Amber this weekend to get that out of the way. Now just to decide if I want 5 or 10 gallons?
