Wouldn't this be a Single Malt and Two Hops? nice lisp. An IPA of some sort is usually my go to though. I'd do something along those lines.

I have a great imperial pale ale(not an IPA) recipe I made that uses only Golden Promise. I'm sure subbing for 2 row would be fine. I can PM it to you or post it of you'd like.

Sorry guys slacked a bit on this thread.. My gear is rigged for 5 gal. batches.. and the heaviest grains i've had in my mash is 13.5 pounds and it was near the top...

I'm thinking of experimenting with a basic single malt reciped and some interesting Hops... lets say 8 pounds per batch.. i'm nearing 90% efficiency since i'm crushing my own grains... and its fairly consistent...

I Have 4 kegs empty rightnow (been a good drinking summer) and one batch finishing up in the secondary.. so that leaves me with three to keg in the next few weeks... and maybe a lager??.. I just need to make time.
