What is 33lbs malt?

Brown and Amber can be used for brown ales, but for porters and stouts you'd need some chocolate or roasted barley/black patent to go along with them. Dark and extra dark crystals could be added to plenty of dark Belgian beers and some stronger English/Scottish beers in moderation, as well as sweet/strong stouts and porters.

You've definitely got a malt bill for just about any UK style beer you want to do- English pale ale, a Scottish, a bitter.

You may have the malt for American style beers, if your "33 pounds malt" is Canadian or US two-row.

You don't have any grains for a stout, porter, lagers, Belgians, wheat beers, etc, unless the "33 pound malt" is a Belgian or German base malt, or wheat.

Why the halcyon malt? 1/4 pound isn't going to add much, if anything, to the beer. Unless it's to convert the amber malt?

If you like amber malt (I love it), you could go with 6 ounces of it, and increase the halcyon malt up to a pound to mash with, along with the crystal.

I don't usually use crystal malt and amber malt together in a hoppy beer, though. I'd probably pick one or the other. Of course 1/8 pound isn't going to give you much anyway- I'd either increase it or leave it out.
