what to brew
 
I have (on hand) Maris Otter, Columbus, Cascade, Citra, Amarillo, and Zythos hops, as well as a mixed culture of London Ale III and West Yorkshire yeast. Willing to pick up specialty malts only. What do I brew???

Mmmm. You've got American hops, but UK malt and UK yeast. You'll have to make a hybrid IPA, or an English pale ale with American hops.

What about a mild? I know it sounds crazy, but it'd be sort of like an American brown, only with lower gravity- and some yeast character and some citrus character from the hops.

guess I should have said this but the yeast is from a mild I just brewed.

Ah. Well, with intensely flavored American hops, your choices are severely limited. I guess just an IPA, but a hybridized weird one, would be the next logical step.
