Default What to do with Maris Otter

This weekend I took inventory of all my supplies as I am running out of space in the freezer for hops and in my brew closet for grains.
I've got 12 lbs of MO, 7 of 2 row and small amounts of Special B, Aromatic and Biscuit.
The hops are too much to name but what I have most of is Cascade, Centennial and a good bit of Simcoe.
I'm not sure what to make but being an IPA fiend, most anything would work for me.
I'm only talking about 5 gallons. Got a few packets of US-05 as well.

Ideally, I'd like to use a good portion of the MO as my favorite recipes I use for keg rotation doesn't include much of it. I'd appreciate suggestions.

Your malts are British and your hops are American. You can make a mean 'Americanized' ESB with that.

Marris Otter is fine IPA base and cascade, centennial, simcoe would obviously work well in that.

Mo works very good as a base for an IPA. I'd use a bunch in an IPA and save a pound or maybe two for a future English beer or something.

And you can add it to a 2-Row if you are a bit short on one or the other as they are similar in many ways.

I know lots of folks use MO as their base grain but I've never done that and wasn't sure about the mash temperature. Guess I should stick to about 152 for IPA.

Thanks for the info.

http://hopville.com/recipe/1614563 I'm brewing this today. It would only take care of a 2 pounds, but it's a start.

I used Maris Otter for a base malt for an American IPA. Turned out great. It makes a good base malt for that or anything English.

Old Ale or Barleywine should do it!

Special Bitter with American hops. It's been done and can work very well if you tone down the hops a bit compared to your run of mill American Pale Ale.

+1. I've done many batches of English styles with MO and used American and sometimes distinctly American hops. It always turns out good. Just like jfr suggested, bring your usage down a little.
