Default Anybody ever brew just a 2-Row recipe?

I'm swamped at work. Ran out of time to order from MW. Can't get to the LHBS before the weekend.

That's the bad news.

Good news is I've got 35#'s of 2-row in the brewshop, some Perle and cascade hops, and enough harvested yeast to start a brewery.

I might be able to rustly up a 1/2 pound of honey malt and a 1/2 pound of flaked wheat, but aside from that, I got no specialty or color grains.

How bout it. Anyone else been forced to brew with just a base malt?

My DFH clone is just base malt (marris otter and two row) so if you make it a hoppy beer, then the malt is just background. You could toast some two-row to make a nutty or toasted or roasted flavor to make things more interesting.

Yooper's DFH 60 just has 6 ounces of MO and the rest is American two-row. I did an almost-all Pils recipe with just a tenth of a pound of Aroma Malt and it was delicious.

I think if you try to do an IPA, you'll wind up kind of bland on the malt-side. So shoot for something that lets the hops show off their flavor and aroma. Make a fresh-tasting beer without the brutal bitterness of an IPA. I suggest a First Wort hop followed by a lot of late hop additions.

Excellent. Brew day is back on. I'm actually just going for a basic house ale at around 4.5% and low to moderate hop flavor/aroma.

So.
Just ghetto with the equipment?
Where are the pisachio hulls, the dark roasted polenta, the crushed WHOPPER malted milk balls?

Seriously.
Scaling back is a refreshing trend away from the extreme beer recipies lately.

Just a pinch of caramel 120 (that's all I have) to bring it to an american lager color. Should come in around 4%. The flaked wheat should help with the head.
