I have an Edinburgh yeast cake from a Scotch ale that I want to pitch a new beer on to that I'm going to brew this weekend. The problem is, I don't know what I should brew. I would like to brew a lighter beer (pale ale, IPA, light Amber), but I wouldn't mind a porter either.

Any suggestions and recipes would be greatly appreciated.

go with the porter. When pitching onto a yeast cake you typically want to go darker

Make a huge Stout or a Strong Scotch Ale... You have yourself a 5 gallon starter so why not take advantage of it?? If you want to go small, split the cake and make a porter with half and a pale ale with the other half.
