Default I'm thinking Biscuit

Looking for some recipe ideas for a partial mash using a Biscuit malt (the toasty flavor in Fat Tire). I have also had Sun Dog Amber Ale from New Holland Brewing in Michigan. These are the only two beers I have ever had with biscuit malt in them.

Let's hear some ideas, please.

I suggest to use the Fat Tire yeast that Wyeast is distributing. Hurry and get some because its out for a limited time. This yeast strian should help with the biscuit flavor you want.

Thats a good idea Milhouse. I will have to make my first yeast starter with that, but I can hack it. - Wait, if it's a Wyeast product I don't need a starter. Smack Packs are ready to pitch.

Any ideas for a recipe? An amber ale would be good, similar to the Sun Dog I mentioned earlier.

Can I just add biscuit to anything?

Why don't you do a Fat Tire clone? That should give you exactly what you're looking for. (I've never had Sun Dog, so I can't help with that).

Yooper, you've never had New Holland's beer before? I realize you are on the cool side of the bridge, but it is still made in Michigan. I just don't have any interest in making clones. I'll look into altering some recipes.

P.S. I am backpacking/snowshoeing in the Porkies in Feb.

No, we don't get any beers from "down below" up here, except for Bell's.

When you go to the Porkies, let me know. Maybe if it's on the way, we can have a beer.

You don't have to necessarily make a FT clone, then. I was just thinking that if it's a FT biscuitiness you're looking for, you could try using a malt bill for a FT clone. Sometimes just adding malts to a grain bill simply "muddy" the taste. If you have a certain idea in mind, we can definitely help you get to where you want to go.

I used biscuit malt in my "Brown Biscuit" ale recipe. Turned out pretty good.
