Default What to make with this

alright my next brew was suppose to be a trappist style using from bret yeast in the secondary. sadly my order won't come in till early next week ( actually a good thing because i talked to my LHBS adn there order got into town but won't deliver because of the 4th).

Anyway i walked around and tasted some grains trying to figure out what to make i really wanna brew on the 4th. this is what i picked up


1 lb chocolate malt
2 lb Caramunich
5 lb wheat(i love wheat beer)
4 lb 6 row pale
2 lb 2 row pale

1 oz amarillo @8.6aa
1 oz glacier @7.4 aa

nottingham
safale us-05

and a blend i am bout to rack off
wlp500 trappist

any ideas on what might work well i figured anything i don't use i can just mash and make a starter for another beer. if i fruit might work out well i can pick some up later for a secondary.


Thanks

Bit of a MacGyver brew! I like it. I would add a sugar such as brown sugar or turbinado. Hit the brew with some of your favorite spices. Maybe even some saffron at the end of the boil.

All your pale, all your wheat, .5 amarillo to bitter, .5 amarillo for aroma, nottingham.
Kind of an American whopper wheat. I get 19 IBU's and 6% alcohol.
Maybe knock out some of the 6row to lower the OG - I was just trying to use up your stash.

Now that I see you wanted to brew today - why don't you tell us what you did finally brew...

2 lb American Two-row Pale (24%)
1 lb Caramunich Malt 60 (12%)
12 oz Chocolate Malt (US) (9%)
8 oz Wheat Malt (6%)

1 oz Glacier at 60 min

Nottingham yeast

Five gallons at ~1.044 at 75%, 24 SRM, 25 IBU

The Porter 155-157, the Amber 151-154, yours I don't know--probably high (157) because it has no crystal malt. That much Chocolate Malt without any crystal will make it taste like a stout. It really needs the sweetness form the Caramunich to give a chocolaty flavor.
