In May I'm going out to the secret ramp in the middle of nowhere Mississippi. I know there will be tons of food, so's I wanna brew up a batch of beer. What kind'a beer should I brew? I've been told to brew up "awsome" beer. That doesn't really help. A stout might be too heavy and something too fancy might get me killed.

Don't stall your inverts too long- ramp owners in the middle of nowhere consider that showing off.

Skate like John Gibson & you'll be fine.

I can't brew a lager cause of temperature problems. I might find some old "Scarfing Material" recipes and just get awsome.

SSSSSSS might be on to something.

from wikipedia:
One exception to the rule of low-temperature lager brewing is found in a beer style known as steam beer or California common beer. The strain of yeast used in steam beer was selected by brewers in the German tradition from the central and eastern United States moving west to California during the 1840s and 1850s. The higher ambient temperatures in that region caused brewers to favor shallower fermenters in order to control fermentation better; over several generations, artificial selection led to the emergence of a lager strain which produced the best beer at temperatures of 18-20 degrees Celsius.

Oatmeal stout

A buddy of mine brews Belgians so he can get more bang (ABV) for his buck.

Belgian doesn't necessarily equal high ABV.

Any kind'a stout wouldn't work. I need to find the middle ground between Bud Light and Fighting Cock. I need to find it soon cause I got to get this started. Maybe I'll do a Golden Ale and throw some old 9 volt batteries into the secondary for some "dry hopping".

O.K. the Anchor Steam clone wins I guess. I'll ferment it in the room with air conditioning.

Seems like I've seen some clone recipes with more normal ale temps, have to look around.

closest thing to beer i ever made was pissing out a lot of beer that i'd already drank.
