I like to have a dark ale, a stout and a lager (pseudo so far) on hand to pick from so I tend to do one after the other. As one of the three is running down I get round to topping it up as the next brew comes round. I like to brew all three about the 6% mark, I like the dark ales with a hop tea and a dry hop. I like the lagers with no hop tea but quite a heavy dry hop and the stouts get no hops but I do like a hint of coffee and chocolate in them. It's nice playing mix and match with the hops and yeast as they can make the same kit seem completely different.

If my wife had her way she'd want my Jet Black Heart clone available at all times but I'm testing out GH's brown porter for now. I'd be tempted to re-brew his Southern Brown Ale now that i have only 4 bottles left. Currently they hobby is still too new and too many styles and ingredients to try out. I just try to have a light, dark and something else to hand most of the time.
