Toasting works well wet or dry. Palmer has a great description of the process in his online book (or print). Just don't shoot for the heavy toasts, as these need time in a paper bag to improve the flavor.

I did a quasi SMaSH with 2-row, toasted 2-row, and centennial hops. Came out okay. Nothing real interesting, but it was drinkable nonetheless. I was hoping to make a lighter version of Deadringer (Two Hearted clone). It fell short in that area.

I neglected to mention I have a pound of roasted barley as well..not that it will contribute anything sugar-wise.

In that case a dry Irish stout might be the way to go. Never made one, but I would guess the 1 lb of RB, 1 lb of flaked barley, and 2 row malt would work well together.

And you have now prompted me to add this to my "to brew" beers

Yes I thought about a stout, but gravity will be a little low. I could bump it up with the corn sugar I guess!?

Guinness is only about 4.2% anyway. The classic guidelines for dry stout is 70% pale ale malt, 20% flaked barley and 10% roasted. You could do something similar with what you have on hand, throwing in some of the corn sugar or honey would add some alcohol, but don't expect to get any honey flavor if you use it in conjunction with all that roasted malt.

Yea, I think dry irish stout is the way to go now that you mention the roasted barley. Anything else laying around (specialty grains etc?)

Nope, that's all. I forgot about the roasted barley. I actually already have a stout in the keg but I guess you can never have too much!

Hell, look around the house for some popcorn and some captain crunch too. Make something cool.

If you wanted to be adventurous you could use your oven and water and create other specialty grains. Take basic two row, produce all the other specialty malts you need and make whatever you want.
