    Not sure it fits your idea of a winter Ale, but I'd be brewing myself an American Brown Ale, faced with that selection.

    Maris (87%), crystal (7%), Chocolate (4%) and perhaps a touch of Torrified (2%) for head retention. Predominantly using the bobek and Amarillo for the late and dry hopping, EKG as backup and fuggle for bittering. SO4 at lower fermentation temp 17-18°c to keep it clean. Malty, Chocolate, piney, citrus goodness. 45 IBUs 5.5% ABV.

    Coffee stout:

    4kg MO,
    0.15kg crystal
    0.3kg choc malt,
    0.3kg oats (porridge ones will do),
    0.2kg wheat.

    Fuggles at 60 only probably and would dump 50g worth of slurry with coffee granules into the FV just prior to pitching the yeast.

    Ghillie what do you mean by "50g worth of slurry with coffee granules"?

    Sorry about the rubbish terminology.

    Mix 50g of granules with enough hot water to dissolve them. Dump them in the FV.

    So here is the final recipe. I hope it turns out Ok as beersmith doesn't seem to know if it's a porter or stout or something in between.
