Fall Suggestions?

Post #1 by Hebron » 4 months 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?

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

Thanks for the responses, guys. I'll be making an Oktoberfest later this week, and I definitely have a black IPA in store now! Pumpkin is not my thing, but perhaps an apple ale. A bitter would be nice too. That should be enough to get me into the winter porters and stouts. Man, this is so much fun! Cheers!

I'll be using apple blossom honey along with freshly picked apples quite soon to make a fall spiced cyser. If mead is your thing, you could also give that a whirl.
