Default Northern Brewer & Willamette

Got 2 oz. of Northern Brewer and 1 oz. of Willamette.

Not sure what I'm in the mood for, thinking of something with Vienna and or Munich as the main malt players........

Would Victory and/or Crystal malts be overkill if using Vienna as the base malt?

Let's hear some grain bill options! (5.5 gallon, all-grain)

What kind of beer to you want? I just did a Best Bitter with those hops, based on Yeoman Special Bitter in the recipe database. It's good, but no Vienna/Munich.

^ I might use the grain bill from my California Common for a pale ale, but I'm undecided and open to suggestions.
For some reason I have been thinking of Vienna, but have never used more than a few pounds in a batch before.

Suppose the only requirement is that it will be an ale, and I'll want to use dry yeast.

You aren't far off my Christmas Tree Ale (based on Otter Head from UK):

Alright, decided to go with Vienna as a base malt. Beersmith is currently not working on my computer for whatever reason so here is what I'm thinking:

5.5 Gallon Batch:
10# Vienna - choices at my LHBS are Durst or Briess, I'm leaning toward Durst
1/2# Crystal 40 or 60 - Briess
1/4# Chocolate - Dingemans

1 oz Northern Brewer @ first wort hop
1/2 oz Norther Brewer @ 15 min
1/2 oz Northern Brewer @ 5 min
1 oz Willamette @ 1 min

Nottingham

Yes, though I think Willamette is the winner as the aroma addition.

Wifey described Christmas Tree Ale (above) as tasting like "a cherry pine tree, but in a good way!"

That recipe looks as good as the one posted by the OP, and I couldn't agree more about Willamette. I use it more than any other hop. It shines particularly well in dark beers; I usually go with a 10 minute addition.

I absolutely love the combo of Northern Brewer and Willamette in Porters and Stouts.
