I do have 45 lbs of Weyermann 2 row pale in my basement.

I have recipes that I am working on that include the Weyermann 2 row.

A Pepper Ale
A Wee Heavy (if I don't get Golden Promise for it)
Cream Ale
Barleywine
Roggenbier

Who knows?

Well I think it sounds kinda tasty myself! I'd mash at around 153F myself, though. I feel the small bit of sacrifice you make in fermentability is worth the richer beer...unless you are brewing a Belgian or a Weizen or something else where the yeast is going to contribute a lot of flavor ...just my opinion.

Batch size 5gal

11# 2row mashed at 152 for an hour

1oz willamette and 2 grams bog myrtle @60 min
1# clear liquid candi sugar @30 min
1 oz cascade and 8oz dried elderberries @10 min
.5oz cascade @ 5 min
.5 oz cascade @ flameout

Add 10oz pure grade b maple syrup day 2 of active fermentation. Dry hop with 1 oz of willamette.

I made this and got some great feedback with it. It was a quick turn around too. The elderberry adds a nice mellow flavor and aroma. And the bog myrtle gives you a really cool buzz. AHS sells both bog myrtle/myrica gale and the dried elderberries.

Ended up doing this...
Mashed at 153 Degres
10# Weyermanns Two-row Pale
Steeped at 170 (20 min.)
0.5# British Crystal 40L

boil volume 5.5 Gal. brix reading 14.5
Batch size remaining just under 5 gal.
Boil time 60 min.
HOP ADDITIONS:
.5 oz Centennial 60 MIN
.5 oz Centennial 50 MIN
.5 oz Chinook 40 MIN
.5 oz Chinook 30 MIN
.5 oz Chinook 20 MIN
.5 oz Chinook 10 MIN
1 oz Chinook 1 MIN (Flame out)
IBU's calculated at 90 and the late aroma hops should add a nice piney nose.
Yeast pitched (no starter) WLP001 (Harvested from older IPA)
Brix reading prior to yeast pitching : 16.5 (1.068)
If I achieve a 1.014 FG the ABV will be just around 7% (IPA~ISH)

This smelled like a tastey brew the chinook really came through. Now... i'm thinking about a pumpkin ale... a basic one at that.

Thanks for your suggestions.. I still have 30 lbs left of the base malts i'm thinking after the pumpkin I use the remaing for a christmas ale.. or barely wine...

I was bored on saturday (cant drink due to antibiotics)... so i brewed a pumpkin ale.
6 # Weyermanns 2 row Mashed
29 oz. libbys unspiced pumpkin (right out the can in the mash)
.5 # Caramunich (steeped)
.5 # Amber DME
29 oz. libbys unspiced pumpkin (right out the can at 60 min.)

Hops
.5 Centenial 45 MIN
.5 Centenial 30 MIN
.5 Centenial 15 MIN
.5 Centenial 10 MIN
1 tbs of irish moss at 5 min.

I have these measuring spoons (tad, pinch, smigen...) that i used to make my own pumpkin spice and only used 1 tsp at 5 min.

pumpkin spice mix.
2 tads Cinnamin
2 tads nutmeg
1 tad clove
3 tads ginger
1 tad allspice

Brix before pitching (WLP545) was 11.. i little undershot my goal.. but should still respectible... I just hope its sweet enough...

Only thing i'm debating on this brew is the 545... i'm sure it will be tastey..
