What to brew for my 300th batch?
« on: December 28, 2018, 03:22:16 PM »
I just finished brewing my annual Barleywine and I realized that my next brew is going to be my 300th batch. After 12 years of brewing, I have brewed most styles at least once (even some that I never thought I would like lagers and sours). I'm going to ask this awesome beer-brewing community for suggestions on what to brew. So, any suggestions would be great except that I have a Pale Ale and RIS on tap and a Barleywine in the fermenter.

How about a Dopplebock like a Samiuclaus clone?

300?  Obviously a tripel!  I did a quadrupel for 400.

Take the favorite beer you brew (if you have one) and “imperialize” it.
On Tap/Bottled: Golsch, Iliff IPA, Hopfenbier, Salted berry cider

Fermenting: Rye Cream Ale
Up Next: G Pils, Maibock

I vote Belgian as well!
Split the batch and age half on some sour cherries.

Wow.  You guys just made me realize I haven't the foggiest idea how many batches I've brewed.  It would be nice to mark milestones.   Although I am entering my 30th year of brewing.... Congrats.  I'd say (though I admit I probably wouldn't brew it myself out of impatience) a great idea would be anything that could be laid down, to celebrate the 400th with!

I’m liking the idea of a Tripel. Something that I can bottle condition and enjoy for a while. So, here goes a quick recipe
13 lbs of Pilsner
1 lb of Simplicity Candisyrup
1 lb of cane sugar
30 IBU Noble hops (I have some Hersbruker)
WY 3787
Not sure if the Candisyrup will add any flavor contribution.

Nope, it won't.  I'd go all sugar myself.

Raw cane sugar -- not Demerara or Turbinado, but the stuff that's just not quite as white as table sugar, like Florida Crystals  --  adds virtually no color, but does add quite a nice flavor, unlike fully refined white sugar.
