Default recipe suggestions please!

Hey guys I was hoping someone might have a sugestion as to what I could brew with the mix of grains and hops I have left over from previous batches and that I have picked up recently. I was thinking maybe a pale ale/ IPA, amber or even a brown ale. This is what I have. 7 lbs 2 row, 2.5lbs 6 row, 2lbs vienna, 2lbs munich, 1lbs roasted barley, 1 lbs black malt, 1 lbs chocolate malt, 1 lbs golden anked oats, about 1lb of Crystal 60, 1 lb Honey malt, and some oatmeal. I have a lot of hops to choose from too. Tettnanger, Stryian goldings, Amarillo, magnum, willamette, centennial, Northern brewer, perle, cascade pellets and leaf. Yeast I have wl001, us-05, and nottingham. I would greatly appreciate some suggestions with what to brew with what i have. I am kind of wanting to do something with the munich or vienna or both because I haven't used those before.

Thanks all!

You could make a pale ale with a little bit of vienna or munich. If you're wanting to use some of the darker malts, you're going to have to consider making a brown ale or a porter.

do an american brown:

7 lbs 2 row
1 lb munich
1 lb vienna
1 lb C60
4 oz chocolate
4 oz black

bitter with Magnum to about 30 IBUs - about a half ounce should get you there
aroma/flavor with centennial and cascade - half ounce to 1 ounce each at 15 and at 5 depending on how much hop character you want
dry hop with amarillo - 1 oz

ferment with 001.

I'll plug it into beer tools and see if something like that works. just off the top of my head it looks good.

edit, yeah...that should make a solid american brown. Big malty backbone with good american hop presence

cool, yeah I've been messing around with the ingredients on beersmith, but I've been working so much OT I haven't been able to sit down and hash something out. I was really lost on which way to go with the hops for a brown. Thanks so much for quick responses!

I more or less agree except add in the naked oats. No wait, even better, toast the oats @ 425 for 30min beforehand.

so....

7.00lbs 2-row
2.00lbs 6-row
2.00lbs munich
1.00 vienna
1.00 toasted oats
0.50lbs c-60
0.38lbs chocolate
0.25lbs roasted barley

bitter with magnum (around 25-30IBU)
flavor (15min) with centennial and perle/northern brewer (around 15-20 IBU)
flavor (10min) centennial cascade (5-10 IBU)
aroma (5min) amarillo, cascade, and perle/northern brewer (1-5IBU)

mash around 152. Gives you a super delicious malt backbone against a good hop profile. Solid double India Brown Ale.

Ferment with WLP001, notty, or 05. Any of them would work well. I would know, I have used them all on india brown ales.

Normally I would not include the vienna and I would up the chocolate so I wouldn't have to depend on the roasted barley, but if you have it you might as well use it right

Notes -

The Porter is basically my Coal Porter here on HBT (q.v.) with the addition of Munich malt and a different bittering hops variety. I <3 Magnum. If anything, it'll be a slightly more malty version of an already tried-and-proven recipe.

The Oatmeal Stout is off the top of my head; thanks for the jigsaw puzzle! It's really quite (too?) complicated, but may work out. Who knows?

Vienna and Munich malts have enough diastatic power to convert themselves a little more besides. The 6-row ought to have enough 'oomph' to convert the oats (NB: My grist lists your Golden Naked oats as Oat Malt) as well as itself, and the Crystal and roasted grains don't need conversion. I don't like finishing hops in non-Imperial Stout styles, so I didn't include any. I put a very high, out-of-style bitterness against the low OG because of all the body-enhancing ingredients in the grist.

Cheers!

Bob
