Want to brew tomorrow since the weather is going to be nice, and the weekend is tied up. Looking for your best advice! Don't have access to any brew stores anywhere close to purchase anything quick-like.

All I have on hand is:
20# 2 row
2.5# amber DME
1# Chocolate
1# Black patent
1/2# Challenger 7.1%
1# N. Brewer 5.7%
1 oz Saaz 5%
1 oz Pride of Ringwood 6.6%
1 oz Perle 6.9%

Lots of dried cascades from last summer
2 packets Safale US-05 (S-56?)
2 packets Saflager S-23

Only want to make a 5 gallon batch.

Well, you could make several things. Just looking at what you have on hand a porter comes to mind. .5-.75# of chocolate, .25# or so of your patent, toss in the DME and then 2 row to whatever OG your shooting for. Your N. Brewer, Challenger, and Pearle would work well with the style I think.

Ok, so playing around in Beersmith, I'm thinking a robust porter, kinda a bit like taddy porter, but a bit different on the hops. 75% eff.

5# 2-row
2.5# Amber DME
0.75# Black Patton
0.5# Chocolate Malt

1.75oz Northern [email protected]
0.75oz [email protected]
0.5oz Northern [email protected]

OG: 1.054
IBU: 38.4
Color: 39.4

Ferment with english ale yeast, s-04 would do wonderfully, although I'd probably use ringwood on it. (WLP005)
Primary:Russian River Redemption clone, Kelly's Melomel, Graham's English Cider 22-23
Clearing:Apple Wine
Aging:Public House Dry Stout, Procrastination Porter, Mr. Brown Ale, Westvleteren 12 Clone, Mead, Duvel Clone, Graham's English Cider 6-21, Belgian Draak Strong Ale, Fig Melomel, Acerglyn, Restorative Tonic Metheglyn
