I've asked for suggestions before and could use some ideas from the brain trust.

current grain on hand -

Briess 2 row - 150#
Victory malt - 2#
Special B -1#
Chocolate malt - 1/2#
Caramel malt 80L -#1
Black patent 1/2#
Roasted barley - 1/4#

hops on hand -

Columbus. 2#
Summit - 1/2#
Cascade - 1#
Calypso - 1#
Hallertau - 2 oz

US05 yeast

I'm looking for a ten gallon tested recipe with what I have. None of the programs I have have recipe suggestions unless I already have recipes in the system. Your help is appreciated. If no one has one I'll manage.

You have a lot of options with those. Here are just a few:

American Brown, Porter, Kitchen Sink CDA (use all the hops, maybe excepting the Hallertau), American pale ale (Summit + Columbus to bitter, Cascade + Calypso for flavor/aroma).

The CDA may be a stretch, since you really want debittered black or midnight wheat for the darkness.

Edit: Oops, just saw it is a 10 gallon batch, so the CDA is out - not enough hops.

It's starting to warm up- dark beers are on their way out. Why not do a APA/IPA? I'd go with 2-Row, C80 (3-4% of grist), and then a touch of victory for a little something interesting, maybe 1/2lb to 1lb in your 10 gallons. You'll end up in the amber/red color range, but I think it could be an awesome hoppy beer with some interesting flavors going on- I actually use C80 in an IPA I make from time to time- it's cool.

Bitter/FWH with your highest alpha hop, and flavor aroma with calypso and cascade. Enjoy!

BTW - Victory in pale ales == awesome. Adds a nice biscuity component reminiscent of an English ale to an APA. Almost required for a brown IMHO also.

cyclonite...... how much hops do you use in a cda? I have pounds of hops as denoted by the # symbol. sorry if I didn't make that clear. I appreciate all the input so far. I might even split the batch and lager half. I've been meaning to do a side by side comparison with the same wort.

daksin have you used any calypso? I Hott them from hops direct because of the cost and i was thinking the pear Apple profile would be awesome if it was the dominant hop and underlined with some spice and citrus hops. just to flesh out the rest of the pallet. bitter, sweet and "sour"


so do you have any notes on calypso that would help bring the apple and pear out to the front?

Ha, that would be my stupidity and lack of attention to detail, not your lack of clarity .

In that case, you have plenty of hops for a CDA. For my favorite hopped up CDA I use ~ 11 oz of hops for a 5.5 gallon batch (110 IBU, mostly late additions). I've done a less hoppy version with 6-7 oz of hops (80 IBU). I would strongly recommend using debittered black (carafa special) or midnight wheat for a CDA though instead of black patent or roasted barley - you want the hops to shine through over the roastiness and astringency (from the burnt husks).
