Just wanted to run this by you:
I'd like to use up a few lb of grain, and I've got various hops, a few yeasts on hand and I'm trying to decide what to do with them. I have:
4 lb wheat
2 lb vienna
1 lb munich
4-8 oz of various darker grains/crystal malts from a couple Kate the Great batches in September
~ 1 lb CTZ
~ 1 lb Norther Brewer
~ 12 oz Centennial
1 oz cascade
1 oz galena
0.5 oz of a handful of others
1 pack S-04
1 pack S-33
Some washed Munich Lager yeast (gettin' old though)
Anyways, I figured that I could make a small 3 gallon batch of wheat with the wheat, vienna and munich and the oz of cascade. Then its just a matter of whether to use the S-04 or the S-33. I would like to use the S-33 and ferment it at like 55 (I know the low end of the recommended ferm temp is 15C or 59 F), to keep it clean, but I am pretty noncommittal at this point.
I have a Farmhouse Belgian Stout on tap, and a Kate the Great RIS in secondary and a Schwarz lagering so I think I'm all set with making any more stouts/dark beers. I have a Pale Ale fermenting and an IPA ready to keg now too, so I'd just like something different.
Let me know your concoctions based on what I've got laying around. Thanks!
