Default What should I do with these extra grains?

Got a few all grain brews under my belt now.

I buy my grains in bulk.
I have:

Muntons Crystal 64.0
Muntons Pale Malt 2.25
Non-Malted Black Barley (Roasted)
Chocolate Malt

And fuggle hops. Although I can always buy more hops. Are there any good recipes which call for most of these ingredients? I'm still in college so I can't spend too much more money on grains.

Any ideas? I;ve looked but can't find many with almost all the ingredients above.

Make a stout. Use the pale as your base. Go easy on the Crystal. Use plenty of chocolate and enough roasted barley to get some color and roasted notes.

Crystal and roasted sound high to me.

Best look for a few tried and tested recipes and loosley follow with adjustments to suite.

I'd suggest either a pale ale or a stout.
For the pale ale, you could use 8 - 10 lbs pale male and 1/2 - 1 lb crystal. You could also use small amounts (up to 2 oz) of chocolate malt or even smaller amounts (no more than 1 oz) of roasted barley if you want to add some colour.

For the stout,
7 - 8 lbs pale malt + 1 lb roasted barley makes a good start. I wouldn't use the crystal, but up to 1/2 lb chocolate could be good. 1 lb flaked barley (which you will have to get) works wonders for head retention, and I wouldn't try a stout without it.

Whatever you do, take careful notes. About 30 years ago, I made a stout out of left over ingredients, and failed to take notes. That brew would have put Guinness out of business if I'd been able to replicate it, but I tried many times, and never got close..

Definitely a stout. Fuggles work quite well solo in a stout and you have everything else you need. A full pound of roasted might be a bit much. I'd go 1lb choco and .5lb roasted, then maybe half a pound or so of crystal.
