want to use the least amount of ingredents as i can.

maybe use.

3 pounds of 2 row
1/2 pound of flaked corn
1/4 pound of honey malt
1/2 pound of flaked rice

1/4 oz. of cluster hops AA of 5.5 for 60 mins
1/4 oz. of crystal hops AA of 3.1 for 30 mins

might use Danstar Nottingham Ale Yeast since i have it here.
what do you think?

Bump the corn to 1lb and replace the honey malt with Victory and you got yourself a winner.

Never used Brown malt, so not sure if it would sub well for Victory. You could always just go with some Carapils, Crystal 10 or Biscuit in place of the Victory
