Many people have drastically different taste in beers. I can only imagine that carries over to the types of beer people love to brew. What's your favorite beer to brew yourself, and why?

I like brewing lawnmower ales, with recycled yeast (sometimes more than one strain) and leftover hops. Just because it's always a cheap brew day that gives me beer everybody (including the AB drinkers) likes. And it always has a different off-flavor, mint, citrus, etc.

    I like your style! – Chaulky Nov 12 '10 at 16:47

I started brewing because I had a hard time finding good commercial examples of the styles I like best: English/Irish/Scottish session beers. Milds, English Browns, Irish Reds, etc.


I'm a fan of the more full-flavored beers. The two that worked out best for me were an Irish Red ale and and Oatmeal Stout.
