so,,, i think that brewing one style of beer that you want to brew is the only way to learn about brewing beer. Changing from one style to the next is not learning. Pick a style of beer you like and try and perfect it. Malts Hops and yeast and water ph, temps and time.
I used to jump from this and that and get no where. Didnt know what was going on.,
Start with a Smash and build from there.
What does that pale taste like. and what does that hop taste like.
Add some crystal, next time, slowely build your beer instead of blindly copying other recipies.
I think its the only way to go. Build your beer from the bottom up.
We learn as we go. Cheers all

Hi Finnroo,
You pose an interesting dilemma. You brew a brew, usually after some time working out what you want, inputting data into Beersmaith and working out what abv you want and what you need to buy to make it work. Then, after brewing you need to wait for at least 4 weeks until you can try it.
Unfortunately I usually drink what I have maturing faster than I brew and you don't want to do another brew until you have tried the last so you can get an idea of what changes to the receipt have done.
I try to do several brews quickly and then when you don't have any empty bottles left, slow down the brewing cycle, unfortunately this does still leave a timing issue.
But I do agree with your base philosophy of brewing what you like to drink and not just follow the recipe, the trick is to find a good starting recipe to start with.
Regards Paul

HaHa yes I know what you mean. Alot of people like my home brew and want to get into it and ask me about how to do it. The best starting point I honestly think is the SMASH.
Single malt and single hop. Say 5 kg of pale malt and 50 grams of Cascade hops divided up. It teaches you how the malt tastes and we learn about bittering and flavour etc from the single hop. Very basic and good. And build from there. Then we might want to introduce some crystal and its like ah thats what the crystal does or maybe change the hops and discovering how different it is . Cheers
