Default What to use Pacman yeast with?

I brewed a highly bitter APA with recultured Pacman yeast, and have a thick yeast cake I don't want to go to waste. I still have 2 jars of this washed in the fridge, but I'm trying to figure out what to brew to pitch on this big cake.

Any suggestions of beers that would benefit from Pacman yeast?

Or a Mocha Porter clone.

Or any beer you want to with it....It doesn't have to be a delicious clone of a great rogue product. I've used it re-brewing several of my favorite recipes.

Very good suggestions, but I was thinking less what Rogue to brew and more what style might benefit from this yeast.

Like Revvy said Pacman is a really versatile yeast you can use it in just about anything.

Look at Rogue's stable of products. They are all sorts of styles that benefit from that yeast.

Any beer style that what normal use a clean, well atenuating, American ale yeast. (APA, IPA, IIPA, Amber, American Brown, Cream Ale, etc.)
