Next up will likely be an IPA but I'm not a hoppy guy. Much prefer lower IBUs and really my tatstes run hard toward the porters and stouts. Probably get started on the lagers/pils for summer drinking as well as maybe a Helles Bock.

We have a converted keg that we have used for our brew kettle and big ole Gatorage coolers for the mash tun.My buddy has gotten real good at re-using yeast.It's just great to brew and drink your own beer! Where are you all getting your grains? I go to place in Toledo called Titgemiers, it's a grain/landscape shop, in a terrible neighborhood of Toledo.
