Now I am into my second year of AG brewing, I've decided to alter my approach from a scattergun attempt to clone my favourite beers, to trying to master a few basic styles that I really enjoy (which I can then experiment with at a later date). The styles I'm looking to tackle this year are:
Porter/Stout - I've made 2 of these so far this year, with decent success, and so am pretty happy with this style.
Saison - One of my favourite styles of beer, but one with which I have had patchy results. I have not had the opportunity to attempt one since I got my brew fridge, but will be attempting again as my next batch.
Belgian strong dark - I'm reasonably happy with this style. Hermann Holtrop's Rochefort recipe works well for me, so I think I will just stick with this.
Hoppy pale ale - I love the taste/aroma of fresh hops, but really dislike those mouth puckering ridiculously bitter examples.
Would people mind offering me recipe suggestions for these styles?
