You could add a Belgian pale or a Saison to that list. 👍

I’m Fermenting or conditioning at the moment are an English IPA, a cascade andcentennial IPA and a mosaic pale ale.

ingedients in transit for a kolsch, a session tropical pale ale (based on saucery) and my regular US pale ale.

Actually, when you have experimented with things you didn't know, experiment by making simpler brews: one base malt, and one hop that you use for bittering, aroma, flavor and hopstand. Optionally dry hop, not all hops are successful for dry hopping. Or choose a known recipe and ferment it with another yeast.

I brewed a saison with Merkur hop only, which is normally considered a bittering hop, and only pilsner malt, MJ M29 yeast. A very nice recipe. Will do this again, but use MJ M31 yeast, which is more considered a tripel yeast.

Or try another mash scheme, like 59°C-65°C-72°C, on a known recipe, just to see what it does to the fermentation.

I have still five different so called "abbey yeasts", and I have re-formulated some recipes to use them. E.g. a weizen, but also using a low-attenuation abbey yeast, and a mash step of 45° to hopefully get some more clove into it. Also with Belgian abbey yeasts: introduce a slight underpitch, e.g. 0.65 instead of 0.75 million cells/Plato/ml (see yeast calculators).

Or pitch at a low temperature, but once the fermentation started, isolate your FV so that it gets warm (perhaps only do this with Belgian yeasts).

I'm on only my seventh brew (Brewzilla 30L) and am doing a second batch of 5 points best bitter (all grain kit from The Malt Miller). I've done several hoppy IPAs, a NEIPA and a Belgian Witt but this is the first that I'm doing a second batch of because it's just amazing, a really refreshing summer ale.

I’ve enough ingredients to do another hazy Jane style clone !
Then I’m needing to order ingredients again so maybe a summery Gooden ale.

I have heard about 5 Points bitter it seems to be creating a bit of a renaissance in this style The Craft Beer Youtube Channel just did a video on it, shame I cant get it over here to try out.

I personally am doing mostly experimentation with styles I havent done like Baltic Porter and Alt Bier I am trying out newer hop varieties, Sabro, Bru1 etc I enjoy the experimentation aspect almost as much as the drinking :onechug:

I haven’t brewed this year because my garage is being converted into a second living room (with a bar) but I have the ingredients ready to do:
  • APA
  • Hobgoblin Gold Clone
  • Hop user-upper IPA (citra, simcoe, Falconers Flight and Nelson)
  • Munich Helles
I’ll hopefully get the APA started on Sunday and the Hobgoblin early next week. IPA when the APA finishes and then the Helles to fill the first empty keg.

As May is traditionally CAMRA Mild Month I'm going to brew a dark mild next.

Just bottled an ESB (Greg Hughes book), Tribute and Betty Stoggs clones are on the to-do list.

I’ve an imperial Islay stout about ready ideal nightcap. A dozen bottles of a NeIpa and a Bohemian Pilsner Lagering.
Making another Neipa next, then I’m needing to order some ingredients.
Thinking a Golden ale if anyone can point out a good all grain recipe ?
Scotch ale with maybe whisky or bourbon and a couple of Neipa and Pilsners to keep topped up.
