Default POLL--what should I brew?

I'm going to experiment with something different today...I'm going to collect a second run-off from the Loose Cannon batch and do a mini brew on the stove.
Ingredients I have on hand:

Grains:
Chocolate wheat
oatmeal
2 row
crystal 120, 60, 40, 20
special b
aromatic
wheat

These will have to be steeped. I also have DME on hand in case I need to fix the gravity.

Once I get a good idea on a style, I'll worry about hops--i have about 10 (EDIT: Errr....19) varieties to choose from.

Yeast has to be safale 56 or nottingham--I'm leaning towards using the nottingham.

POLL CLOSES AT 1PM EST.

I can't imagine a better brew to pull out in a few weeks than a nice stout. Mine usually get enough carbonation in just ten days and that would put you right on target for St. Patty's day.

Yeah, irish stout is out--no roasted barley. ESSENTIAL.

Oatmeal stout i could prolly pull off though.

I said ESB, but I'm thinking more pale ale. Something nice and clean. Good spring beer. Fuggles and EKG. Half-pound of wheat for head retention. Some crystal 20, keep it pretty pale. Nottingham. Gravity around 1045 - 1050, IBUs maybe 35-40. Session beer.

Need me to change your vote?

Whatever I do, it will be a low grav session beer.

I'm surprised we don't have 1 vote for APA yet...

Personally, I was making the assumption that you probably have a lot of domestically-hopped pale ales already kicking around, that maybe doing something more English in character would be a little bit different.

Yeah, definitely. I kind of want an English session style beer around.
