Fall Suggestions?

Post #1 by Hebron » 5 days ago

Greetings fellow brewers! I was sitting on my deck last night with a light lager in hand when I felt a change in the wind. It turns out it was a tornado blowing over me (it landed in the next town), but what followed was a chilly cold front that reminded me that fall is not that far off! Call me crazy, but I love fall, and one of the reasons is because of the great fall beers. Being my first autumn as a homebrewer, I'm looking for suggestions on where to begin experimenting. What are some of your favourites?
Fermenting: citra SMaSH, Immodest Clone
Serving: Canadian Buck Fifty Lager, Cascade IPL, OBK Cream Ale
Up next: currently soliciting suggestions!

My favourite beer to brew in the fall is my house black IPA, which I am brewing this year using exclusively 100% home-grown wet chinook hops. I'm quite excited about it.

To answer your question more generally, you could try your hand at:

A dark ale or black IPA, as mentioned above
A pumpkin ale using traditional pumpkin pie spices and baked pumpkin flesh
A nice warming red ale
