Ok so i'm short on cash till i get paid. And even then i don't know if i'll be able 2 purchase any ingredients will have 2 see. I was going through what i had leftover. And i found 3lbs of Light (LME) and about 3.5lbs of plain light DME and 32oz jar of pure raw honey. In the freezer i found 1oz of cascade pellets and 1oz of Czech Saaz pellets and 1oz of German Tradition pellets. I was thinking of whipping something up but not sure what. Any ideas on how to put this all together? I was thinking about maybe adding some strawberrys 2 the secondary and making a fruit beer of some sort. What do ya'll think? what would you even call a beer will all light extract? I usually just buy kits or buy ala carte and go by someone else's recipe. I have also heard that seeing i have no steeping grain i could maybe steep some flaked oats that i toasted in the oven from the local grocery store to give the beer more head and body. Is this true and if yes how long would i steep them? Thanks for any ideas!

Ya you can make a beer with that, as long as you have yeast! Strawberry's are expensive and you have to add a boat load to get flavor. I would spend that extra money on a little grain to steep. And yeast if you don't have it. You can make a lot of different styles with just a little bit of grain. Extracts are the expensive part.

And yes you can add flaked oats for a creamy taste. Like an oatmeal stout. No need to toast. Just steep with your grains, half a pound for an hour or so

For a cheep oat meal stout

Maybe do the german and saaz at 60 and the cascade at 45 or 30 if you want a little hop presence

I've never used honey but I'm sure if you added that along with the dme it would come out tasting alright. Maybe dry hop with the cascades for a honey ipa or something if you don't wanna purchase anything.

Steeping grains are cheap, 1.75 a pound, try some caramel malt and use only 8 ounces of the honey toward the end of the boil. Save the oats for a stout. Use the cascade for bittering and split up the saaz, 1/2 20 min and 1/2 for 5 min. You will have a nice beer, better than anything you could buy at the store.
