Just finished off drinking my first attempt at homebrewing and was pretty happy with how it turned out and excited to do it again. It was an IPA with columbus and cascade hops. Understand some of the mistakes I made.
What's your favorite style to brew? Best and/or most interesting one you've attempted? Tips for beginners?

I haven't brewed anything in a few years. Still wanting to get back into it.
Tip: make sure everything you're using to make it is as clean and sterile possible.
No I did not lose a sig bet, but I am really really really ridiculously good looking.
I know there is a guy on the BYC board who homebrews.
The Michigan state board has an pretty big thread specifically for homebrewers as well. Im looking to get into it soon myself but am still doing my research.

I was actually in a Chapters (Canadian version of Barnes & Noble) looking for Christmas presents when I stumbled across a 1 gallon all-grain kit, and thought well, now is a good a time as any.
Probably do a stout for the next one.
If I get back into it I am going to do a barrel aged stout. Once I move into my new place I think I am going to get my setup back out.
How big would you go with the ABV on that one?
At least 10%.
Got a DIPA dry hopping as we speak. Did a kit from a local store. will start using my own recipes soon though.
Sarah sorry about the Herpes.
Nice. What hops are you dry-hopping with?
It was Nugget bittering and columbus for taste, aroma, and dry hop. I'm thinking of trying a zombie dust clone with citra if this works out and then let the experimenting begin.
I think this is my first batch as well. All grain I assume, right?
I don't believe all grain. I could be wrong.
I wouldn't recommend jumping straight into all grain. For one thing it requires extra equipment.
Yes It is much more complicated than the process i did.
Extract is easy to do from what I seen. But you never know how fresh the extract is and you have less control over the flavor.
It seems all grain gives the brewer much more control over the malts taste.
All grain is the way to go for sure. I would just get my feet wet with an extract recipe first.
