Default What direction should I go?

Hey everyone,

I recently purchased grains to do a 5 gallon batch of Yuri thunderstruck pumpkin but decided I wanted to go a different direction other than a pumpkin beer. Below is a 15 gallon batch that I cut and pasted but I did size it down to 5 gallons on the grains.

21.00 lb Pale Malt (2 Row)
5.00 lb Caramel/Crystal Malt - 60L
2.50 lb Biscuit Malt
1.00 lb Wheat, Flaked

Any ideas I could go with this grain bill would be greatly appreciated!

It sounds like you have the beginning of a good Christmas Ale:

OG: 1.057
FG: 1.010
SRM: 14
IBU: 32
ABV: 6.2%

7 lbs Pale Malt (2-Row)
1.75 lbs Caramel 60L
.75 lbs Biscuit Malt
.25 lbs Wheat, Flaked
1 lb Honey (After flame-out)

.5 oz Galena (@60 min)
.5 oz Cascade (@20 min)
.5 oz Cascade (@10 min)
.5 oz Galena (dry hop)

1 tsp Irish Moss (@ 30 min)
1 oz Ginger Root, Fresh (peeled, sliced) (@10 min)
2 ea Cinnamon Sticks, broken up a bit (@10 min)
2 ea Nutmeg, whole, broken up a bit (or 1/2 tsp ground) (@ 10 min)

1 L Wyeast Belgian Abbey Yeast (1214); Starter

Mash In @ 152F (Step Temp) for 60 min; Mash out @ 168F (ST) for 10 min; Sparge @ 168F over 45 min.

Leave spices in primary after chilling wort. Primary 7 days @ 70F; Secondary 14 days @ 70F; Cold crash then bottle w/ 5oz priming sugar.

Actually, I like this one enough that I may do it as well.

Just toss some more hops in towards the end.
