That's not a bad selection of malts with the 4 base malts including wheat, 3 different L crystal malts plus the special W which sounds like it's a sub for special B. If the carafa malts are not the debittered ones then you would use the carafa I for chocolate malt and the carfa III for black malt. What might be more limiting are the other ingredients. Sounds like just 2 hop varieties to choose from - do you know what they are? And what yeasts do you have available?

Unfortunately the girl at the malt distributor doesn't know.

I have access to Champagne yeast. I have been told it would be wise to buy the pale ale malt and play around with those. What do you think?

The problem with champagne yeast is that it can't ferment all the sugars in wort made from malted barley. Almost 60% of the wort is maltose and maltotriose (source How to Brew). I'm pretty sure champagne yeasts can't break those down. Maybe you can order some quality dry brewing yeast (safale, danstar)?

Good, you started a new thread.

Like we told you in the other thread, get a sack of Pale Ale malt and experiment with modifying that rather than buying 25kg of specialty grains you won't even use. Stick with the "aroma" hops. Perle is a fabulous dual-purpose hops variety.

Yeast is going to be a major problem. Not all yeasts are the same. You really need to get some proper brewing yeast. Dried yeasts are your best bet, because you'll probably be purchasing them from far away.

Cheers!

Bob
