Default Pretty big partigyle left over, what should I do with it?

So I made a RIS today.

19lbs 2-row
1.5lbs Roasted Barley
1lb special b
.75 Chocolate Malt
1lb carapils

Ended up with about 5.25 of 1.099 into the fermenter, and then pushed more water through the grain, and I've got about 4.2 gallons of 1.038 left over.

What the heck should I do with this?

I've got some DME around, I've got a good number of different adjuncts if it needs more, I'm just at a loss where to start.

I could do a milk stout? I really don't want to go through the hassle of another mash though to convert some flaked adjuncts. Can I pull it off without the flaked?

Black IPA?

I think I'm going to go milk stout, I've found a few recipes that don't call for flaked stuff, and there's too much caramel and raisin (the special b in particular) to get away with a black IPA.

might be too late, but you could leave it alone and do a brown ale. minimal hops, something english preferably english low attenuating yeast.

ESB 1968 would be great for what you have left. Use English yeast and call it a mild, or use a different yeast, and call it a brown ale

try to run more through and then blend a half gal to a gal of the high grav with the low grav. could do a session milk stout type of thing with the second runnings. use wlp002 or w/e low attenuating english yeast.

The plan is to boil with a 60 minute oz of UK Kent goldings (7.5%), lactose and a pound and a half of light dme at 10 minutes, top off to five gallons, ferment it out with us-05 (the lowest attenuating yeast I have on hand), then toss some vodka cacao nibs in toward the end of primary.

Something like a chocolate milk stout, or at the worst, a chocolate milk Porter.

with all that dme your gravity should be better then. i always go all grain so i'm not accustomed to extract additions in the boil.

what's wrong with 1.038? one of my favorite recipes is an ordinary bitter that with an og of 1.032 and it's awesome. you can also drink it all night without getting trashed.

Cool,

to each his own. I will say that my 1.032 bitter had a FG ~ 1.012 and a boatload of body. not light in any way if you didn't know the gravity.
