I personally like to keep a lot of random stuff on hand. I think that you should always keep a few pounds of wheat and rye on hand in case the mood strikes you to use them as well as flaked wheat, flaked rye, flaked oats. I know you said you have 2 row but personally I like to also have a big bag of pilsner on hand

I like to keep some wheat malt and pilsner or two row on hand. I have lots of random ounces and half ounces of specialty grains left over from orders when I had to buy more than I needed. Eventually they make their way into new recipes and get used up.

I also buy hops in bulk so I usually have a fairly neutral hop on hand. I also yeast wash so I always have many strains on hand.

I have pilsner and 2-row as my staples.I have a lot of random leftovers but those are the only two that I constantly stock up on.
Primary 1: pale ale
Primary 2: blondie
