Fruit: Add your choice of fruit or fruit flavoring after primary fermentation.
Sour: Add lactic acid after fermentation, or use Lactobacillus/Pediococcus-type bacteria
Hoppy: Add more hops all around! Punch up those IBUs!

American Macro: Pilsner or 6row with Corn and/or Rice, low hopping
Pilsner: Pilsner/Lager malts optionally with other very light specialty grains, noble bittering
Malty German: Think Munich and Vienna. Amber Lager or Bock grain bill with noble hops.
