Default Only 5 lbs of 2 row - need recipe

I won't have time to get any more ingredients by this Saturday so what's a good quaffable recipe I can make with 5 pounds of Canadian 2 row? I don't have anything else except lots of corn sugar and a pound of flaked barley and honey. Tons of hops various kinds and S05, S04, Coopers yeast.

Cheers

How is your efficiency? With 5 lbs of 2-row and 1.5/2 lbs of honey you could probably do a pale... Assuming you have high efficiency and can extract enough sugar to make it about 4%.

make a 3 gallon batch? 5# of 2 row and 1/2# of flaked. hops as you desire. should be done fast and make a decent 5% session beer.

With what you've got, I don't know if there is anything to do but put all of the grain in a mash, put the honey and some sugar in the end of the boil and hops to taste.
Any additions like spice would probably overpower the flavor with your grain bill. Honey should be fine and the sugar should help bring up the alcohol level.
Any reason why Saturday is a critical date?
Can you wait till you can go shopping and make something that interests you?

You could always go crazy a little and see if there are any fermentable looking grain type things at the grocery store. What have you got to loose?

I would mash your 5 lbs of 2 row around 151 with a handful off barley, add two pounds of corn sugar to the boil. This will give you a beer that is light with a bit of body. Don't overdo the flaked barley though, less than 1/2 pound I owuld think.

make a nice little pale ale, get your ibus in the 30 range.

so, an ounce of cascade at 60 and one at 10


chill and ferment at 65 with a clean yeast - I like uso5 for almost all my ales. It's clean and fast.

should be ready to drink in about 1.5 weeks, that is if you keg after 5 or six days. bottle carbing will take weeks longer.

download beersmith trial version and play with what you have, it will give you a decent idea of your results at different temps and such.

No I don't have to brew Saturday, but if I wait it will be another week at least. Yes I get quite high efficiency normally. I do a pretty fine crush and have never had a problem with stuck mashes.

I would toast a half pound of the 2 row for some color and look around the house for a pound of oatmeal for some mouthfeel.... And possibly a pound of whole grain rice to boost the abv a little

braggot? guess it depends on how much honey you have though.
I agree with captncullys suggestion to toast 1/2lb of 2row
4.5lbs canadian 2row
0.5lbs toasted canadian 2row
0.5lbs flaked barley
5.0lbs of Honey added at flame out
2.0lbs of table sugar/corn sugar (mainly to bump gravity) at flame out

hops of your choosing, but
1.0oz 10AA for 60mins
1.0oz 5AA for 15mins

S04 or S05 at 65deg

should yield a 7.5%-8.0% Braggot, assuming 75% eff

good luck
