Default What would this make as far as type of beer?

I have 5lbs of 2-row left over from my last recipe and is crushed already.

What would this make

BIAB - 5 lbs 2-row

Mash in at 168 in 2 gallons of water, hold at 153 for 60 min

Let it drain, place bag in 170 degree water for 15 minutes, let drain, and then add to main pot.

Boil for 60 min, cool down, and pitch in Irish Ale yeast.

Just curious what kind of beer this would make, do you think it would be any good. This is what I have at my house right now.

Only other thinks I have is corn sugar, dme, and ginger root.

Why don't you toast some of the 2-row before brewing it to create some more flavor and body? And..... hops?

I certainly could toast 1lb or 1/2 lb of the 2-row, unfortunately i'm out of hops.

Yes. Hops would be good.

You need to add something that will add bitterness to the beer. Without hops, you will not like what you produce. There are alternatives to hops, such as some spices such as heather. Some people will brew with spruce tips. Heck, I imagine you might be able to impart some bitterness with that ginger root.

Try 1.5 oz fresh grated ginger per gallon for the last 30 minutes of your boil. Assuming, of course, that you like ginger.

You may want to either add in your DME or scale this batch down to 3.5-4 gallons.

Sorry I should have mentioned, I was thinking about turning this into a 2.5 gallon batch.
