So there are some really good resources out there that tell what kind of flavor yeasts and hops bring to the party, right? Does anyone know of something like that for specialty grains?

Closest I can get you is http://www.bodensatz.com/staticpages...hp?page=Grains . I don't know if this helps or not.
He has lots of good info on his site.

...is a good start online. Most of the scriptures (Papazian, Palmer and the others) have sections on grains as well. Google specialty grains, and you'll actually get good results.

EDIT: That bodensatz link is a really good one...

This is more basic than bodensatz (I 2nd the nice link), but also includes SRM, and a few other things bodensatz doesnt have. The other links to hops, boil times, yeast, etc on the side bar is good info too.

I need to get a paper copy of Palmer's book...

Great resource, helps a lot with a recipe I've got forming in my head (an Oktober-festy ale). Thinking some pale ale malt as the base, maybe a pound, pound and a half of Munich, little bit (half pound?) of Biscuit, some crystal 60L, and 2oz black patent for color (along with DME, it's a partial-extract recipe).

The ultimate in recipe formulation texts is Daniels' Designing Great Beers. It will change the way you brew, and you can take that to the bank - the money bank.

Yeah, time for me to invest in some new literature (and to find my damn copy of Complete Joy - I think the babe hid it).
