if they aren't afraid of the blackness then the dry stout recipe from brewing classic styles is hard to beat. simple, BM friendly, a light bodied easy drinker and a crowd pleaser. make sure grind the roasted barley to a powder in a coffee grinder, and use either an irish or english ale yeast, i like fuller's/1968/002 or wyeast irish ale.
a good pale ale malt (i use fawcett golden promise) 70%
flaked barley 20%
roasted barley 10%
east kent goldings, 60 minutes, 40-50 IBU, depending on how big you make it.
OG between 1.040-1.050, that's up to you.

The very first beer I brewed on my BM was this Weizen...

Simple, uses a step mash, ferments well, and it won a Best of Show last year.

Had some good results for a Porter with the following malt bill, varying the hops, and the malt percentages a bit:

Code: Select all
Special B           6,75%      550 gr     391 EBC
Cara-red           20,86%     1700 gr      40 EBC
Pils 3L            67,48%     5500 gr       3 EBC
Black malt          1,23%      100 gr    1200 EBC
Roasted barley      1,23%      100 gr    1000 EBC
Chocolate  800L     2,45%      200 gr     800 EBC

Mash 70min at 67C in 45l
use 6l for sparging

Northdown         9,50%       50 gr         60 Min.    31 EBU
Willamette        6,00%       30 gr         20 Min.     7 EBU

1084 Irish Ale    (but Danstar Nottingham also works ;-)

This is an Pale that's made very simple.
I've got inspiration from various Pale Ale Recipes , including the one from Spiedel.
Simple but the beer that most of my "test-people" really like!
