Anyone have some ideas on what to brew next that would use some of the left overs I have (I brew 2.5 gallon batches).

5 lbs 2 row
1/2 lb chocolate malt
1/2 lb crystal 20
5 lb wheat malt


Just finished an IPA, before that a Belgium wheat, before that a dunkel.

Thanks!!!

Have any oatmeal as well? Looks like you could make a oatmeal stout out of that.

I could definitely pick some oatmeal. Thanks for the tip. Never made that before, but sounds good!

Could do a low gravity IPA with wheat. Kind of like a session version of Little Sumpin' Sumpin from Lagunitas - that uses a bunch of wheat. I'd use all that you have listed except the choco malt (obviously) and hop it a good one with your favorites. I bet it'd be tasty.

Cool. So I think I'm going to do a scaled down version of this recipe, a Nut Brown Ale, and modify it to fit what I have and pick up some Oatmeal. Not sure about the Victory, but I might leave that out. Anyway, thanks for the tips and helping me get in the right direction!

I just did kind of the same thing; I added up all the partial bags I had, and according to BJCP, I brewed a mild. I added 8 oz of home toasted oatmeal and in 7 days it went from 1.038, to 1.012. I am leaving it to ferment for another week as my first taste was way too sweet. I will keep you all posted if it cleans up or not.

EDIT:
Here it is 4 days later and the SG is currently 1.008 and the cloying sweetness is completely gone. Fermentation is probably done, but I will give it another week in primary just in case. The taste is actually fantastic. The desired bitterness is there and it actually has nice mouth feel. The last time I brewed a mild it sucked as I was very new to brewing then, and didn't have good sparging technique. If I can replicate this batch again, I will always have a cold one waiting for me and my wife.

Reason: Update
