I'm swamped at work. Ran out of time to order from MW. Can't get to the LHBS before the weekend.

That's the bad news.

Good news is I've got 35#'s of 2-row in the brewshop, some Perle and cascade hops, and enough harvested yeast to start a brewery.

I might be able to rustly up a 1/2 pound of honey malt and a 1/2 pound of flaked wheat, but aside from that, I got no specialty or color grains.

How bout it. Anyone else been forced to brew with just a base malt?

My DFH clone is just base malt (marris otter and two row) so if you make it a hoppy beer, then the malt is just background. You could toast some two-row to make a nutty or toasted or roasted flavor to make things more interesting.

Yooper's DFH 60 just has 6 ounces of MO and the rest is American two-row. I did an almost-all Pils recipe with just a tenth of a pound of Aroma Malt and it was delicious.

I think if you try to do an IPA, you'll wind up kind of bland on the malt-side. So shoot for something that lets the hops show off their flavor and aroma. Make a fresh-tasting beer without the brutal bitterness of an IPA. I suggest a First Wort hop followed by a lot of late hop additions.

Excellent. Brew day is back on. I'm actually just going for a basic house ale at around 4.5% and low to moderate hop flavor/aroma.

So.
Just ghetto with the equipment?
Where are the pisachio hulls, the dark roasted polenta, the crushed WHOPPER malted milk balls?

Seriously.
Scaling back is a refreshing trend away from the extreme beer recipies lately.

Just a pinch of caramel 120 (that's all I have) to bring it to an american lager color. Should come in around 4%. The flaked wheat should help with the head.
