Default Need suggestions for a recipe

I'm back at homebrewing after a break over the last half of the fall semester due to a lot of work to do. However, I have come into possession of 18 lbs of light DME due to a colleague and her husband moving and giving up brewing for a short time.

So I have something like 20 lbs of DME waiting to be made into beer, and have a hodgepodge of grains and hops from him and my own stash, with no real set style to brew.

I have:

Probably 6-9 oz each of: Caravienne, Caramunich, Crystal 50*L, Coffee malt, and black roasted barley.

For hops I have: 1 oz 6.9% AA Cluster pellets, 2 oz whole Kent Goldings, and some wild hops that I've been meaning to use.

I can probably get basic hops at my sorta LHBS, but nothing too out of the ordinary, but nothing really in the way of specialty grains.

Anyone have any suggestions on a recipe I could use with these ingredients, I'm contemplating a mutt beer, but the 6.9% AA hops and Kent Goldings won't get me far in bitterness.

You could probably make a pretty nice red ale with that set of grains. Maybe go a little heavy on the DME and make it a double red ale. They make one at Dominion Brewing and it was damn good. Although you might need to pick up a few more hops like you said...

I'm going with the following recipe, can anyone give me suggestions as to whether my planned hop schedule is okay:

MALTS
4.5 oz British Crystal 50-60 L
6 oz Caramunich
6 oz Caravienne
6 lbs Light DME

HOPS (all pellets)
1.1 oz Cluster 6.9% AA @ 60 min*
0.3 oz Magnum 12.3% AA @ 60 min
1 oz Cascade 6.4% AA @ 20 min
0.8 oz East Kent Goldings @ flameout
* = 1 oz hop bags seem to contain about 1.2 oz when I get them.

Safale US-56 yeast

Is this too much in the way of hops for say an amber/red ale?

Any suggestions, critiques, or insults?
