Homebrew for the Seasons

jpc8015 | Nov 14, 201112:57 AM     11

I recently got into homebrewing and want to brew beers that correspond with the seasons. Due to my work schedule I am only able to brew four times a year and am not able to enjoy the fruits of my labor until I have left for work, been gone for several weeks, and returned home.

In October I brewed a stout that is bottle conditioning now. I will get to enjoy that when I go home in December. That was my winter beer. I am now triyng to figure out what kind of spring beer I want to brew when I go home next month. I think I have narrowed it down to a nut brown ale or a Belgian pale ale. Any suggestions?

I have to be able to brew and bottle my beer within about 17 days so extended fermentation is a no go for me.
