Looking for a beer recipe
« on: November 09, 2014, 05:26:49 PM »
Hello
im a new brewer looking for my third batch of beer. 
What i am looking for is a stronger mouthfeel beer with hoping around 15 to 20 ibus without a lot of bitterness. And im an extract brewer.
What would everyone suggest?

Stouts or Scottish ales.

Invest in a copy of brewing classic styles. Solid recipes all in extract with all-grain conversion.

William's has a really good Brown Ale with a good mouthfeel and little bitterness. Also, their spiced brown ale is good.

Also, FWIW, you can add Maltodextrin to the boil to increase body and mouthfeel in low-gravity beers.

+1 to Scottish ales for malty mouthfeel and low IBUs.  Belgian dubbel is another good idea.

What have you brewed so far? What do you like to drink?

Scottish ales are a good choice, as are stouts and porters. English brown ale would be a good choice as well.

If you can brew lagers, then just about any lager style will get you what you're after, especially Märzen or anything darker.

I have brewed a honey wheat and have an apple ale going.  Tried a commercial breweries stout the other day and was a bit too bitter for me
Not really interested in lagers

Stout runs a wide range from dry to sweet, malty to hoppy, little to huge. Which commercial stout did you try?

Hmmm. From what I can find its a milk stout. That tells me you really like subtle flavored beers. See if you can find a bottle of New Castle Brown. Let us know what you think of that.
