So, I'm looking for some recipe suggestions. I like almost all kinds of beer, partial to Belgian-ish beers. But, I brew and drink everything - stouts, IPA's, wheat beers, porters, ambers, etc.

I buy hops and base grain in bulk. I usually buy specialty grains as needed. I still do a good bit of partial mashes, but I can convert AG -> PM no problem. I do not have a way to lager...

So here's what I have on hand:

Base malts:

55lb British Pale
20lb Continental Pils
50 lbs Light Dry Extract (couldn't resist for under $2 a pound)

Left over from last bulk buy:
4lbs 2-row
3 lbs Munich 10L

Hops all in ounces:
Sterling - 8
Vanguard - 7
Amarillo - 8
Styrian Golding - 5
Centennial - 6
Cascade - 21
GR Magnum - 8
Willamette - 17
Saaz - 5
US Golding - 16
US Magnum - 16


I'm been thinking of using the Pils + vanguard, saaz, and Sty Goldings to do some "Belgians." I did a pretty nice "Belgian red" that's on tap right now...

You are aware that we have an extensive recipe databse here, aren't you? They are even organized by style. Some of the styles even have 200+ recipes within the category.

They are also acesessable from many folk's recipe pulldown under our names.
Like my snazzy new avatar? Get Sons of Zymurgy swag, here, and brew with the best.

Yes, but I'm lazy

I was hoping for some "you really should brew X with those hops/grain/whatever."

I already have all those sites bookmarked. I've had mixed results with a lot of them - really liking some, meh on others. Same with Brewing Classic Styles.

When you look at recipes for more than about 15 minutes they start to blend together. It'd be nice to have a site that you could say "here's what I have on hand, suggest some recipes". BeerAlchemy has that capability, but you have to enter all the recipes first...
