Default 8.75 lbs Maris Otter LME

About a year ago I purchased 40 lbs of misc. partial bags of extract. I have two left, one of which is the title bag. Any good ideas on what to make, other than a Wee Heavy or a Left-Coast IPA? I've lots of Columbus and a couple oz. of Cascades, but could nip out & get some other hops. Also have a pound each of chocolate, crystal 40L and munich.

I'd use the MO, Crystal, and optionally the Munich to make a British PA or ESB. But I also think MO is fine to substitute for 2-row in just about anything, so it really depends on what you feel like and how your tastes are running.

Maris Otter is just an English Pale malt so can be used in any recipe calling for pale malt. I just used it in my Hob Goblin Clone.

i second the ESB. nice malt profile, plus those awesome hops. it'll be a "West Caost" ESB, but an ESB non-the-less!

I think I'll do an ESB, but only use 7 lbs of the extract. That way, I'll have a nice session ale for mowing the lawn in February. I have to cut the grass just before the daffodil season or wait until they are done blooming. Takes most of the day with all the time I spend winching the tractor out of gopher holes!

7 lbs MO LME
8 oz munich
8 oz crystal 40L
2 oz chocolate (for color)

0.75 oz Columbus @ 60
1 oz Cascade @ 45
