Default Left overs

I have various small amounts of grains, DME and a few hops sitting around in my house. All leftovers from various recipies I have made. Should I combine them all into some kind of twisted frankenbeer or save them for future use?

I'll try to post a list of what I have over the weekend when time allows, but I have 12 mason jars with various levels of grains and DME and probably 3 types of hops in the fridge. yeast will have to be bought. if the frankenbeer is to be made any suggestions on yeast to use?

your pal;
THE CAD

I think it depends on what you've got. If you have some mix of grains that will play nice together, frank it up. If you've got a bunch of weird ass odds and ends, maybe save them out. For yeast, I would say see if you end up close to a certain style. If you have the makings for a stout/porter, for example, use the proper yeast. If you want a good general yeast for a "whatever I end up with" style, just use a basic all-purpose dry yeast like 04, 05, or Nottingham.

Looks like a small batch (2-3gal.) of brown ale or porter to me. Sounds good.

Bitter with magnum, flavor/aroma with goldings. Use an english yeast (04, wl002) or US05/Nottingham.

Posts like this reinforce our need for an addon to BS or some sort of web app where we can enter our leftovers and it will spit out a list of recipes that we can brew with what is on hand or with minor additions.

That would be a great idea! Tried googling but it's to complex for google to understand, plus the millions of recipes online.. Oh well if worst comes to worst I will just try something random!
