Default What to do with these ingredients?

I ordered a bunch of stuff online and bought too much stuff. I made the mistake of having all my grains milled. I believe this cuts down on life span?

I am not the best at putting recipes together yet. Looking at the list of ingredients below, What would you brew with some or all of these things? Just so everyone is aware, I can only do 3 gallon boils.

I obviously need to buy some DME and yeast, but here is what I have on hand right now:

1.75 lbs. British Brown malt
13.4 oz. Chocolate malt
2.5 oz. Black Patent
12.5 oz. Roasted Barley
4.6 oz. Special B
4.7 oz. Victory malt
1/2 lbs. Biscuit malt
8.4 oz. Red Wheat
12.5 oz. Honey Malt 20 L
1/2 lbs. Crystal 40 L
12.6 oz. Crystal 80 L
1/2 lbs. Crystal 120 L


.5 oz. Nugget
.5 oz. Willamette
.5 oz. Cascade
.5 oz. Centennial

*EDIT: I forgot. I also have about an ounce of candied orange peel.


I currently have a porter in Primary. Don't really want to brew another one but I might have to with these ingredients. All recipes welcome. THANKS!

Play around with these ingredients. Have fun. I want to brew soon. Have at it!

I forgot to mention. If I can get two recipes out these ingredients that would be awesome too! Maybe an IPA and a Porter. or A brown ale and something else. I'm not really sure. Play with the ingredients. Make it wild, make it boring, just make it beer!

The biggest issue you have is NO base malt, well a few ounces of wheat and Vienna don't really count as much. If you are doing a partial mash and bought DME/LME then you could actually make a few different combos by adding your specialty grains. You've got enough roast and patent to make a decent dry stout (on the lower end of SRM) and probably could make a decent English Brown using some of the crystals and the brown malt. Although to make 2 beers you might also need to buy a little more hops.

PS - you can use milled grains for about 6 months if stored correctly, I believe.

Thanks electric! That's cool. If I need to buy some base malt, I'll do that too. Looking forward to see some recipes!

Well, I don't really want to buy more hops unless of course it's only a little amount. Perhaps just one beer then?

I am down for brewing ANY style but if possible would like to steer away from a dry sout. I have already brewed a stout and would like to brew something different. Either way, keep the recipes coming!

He is a partial masher, he uses DME, not base grains.

In any case, I would suggest a Barleywine and a Brown.

Use in BW:
1.75 lbs. British Brown malt
13.4 oz. Chocolate malt (maybe not all of this...probably not all)
2.5 oz. Black Patent
12.5 oz. Roasted Barley (maybe not all of this...probably not all)
4.6 oz. Special B
4.7 oz. Victory malt
1/2 lbs. Biscuit malt
8.4 oz. Red Wheat
4.6oz C40L
1/2 lbs. Crystal 120 L

Use in Brown:
12.5 oz. Honey Malt 20 L
1/2 lbs. Crystal 40 L
8 oz. Crystal 80 L

If this is a way you want to go, you will need to buy more hops and a lot of DME and Corn Sugar, but we can help you if you like.

If the Barleywine seems too big, then you will need to split into more than 3 beers.

Thanks DKershner! They both sound great! I'll keep these in mind. I have always wanted to make a Barley wine.

Ahoy hoy!

Corvallis is a college town about 100 miles west of here where it rains constantly and everything is green, all of which I am sure you know. Bend is in the high desert, is a resort area, and experiences 200+ days of sunshine a year.

Oregon is a varied, very nice place. Welcome.
