You got all the ingredients for my upcoming ESB. Or just a plain old golden. Pick a hop, use half pils, half 2 row and 3/4 lb 60L. The Saaz look great...I say go with them.

Make a dry stout.

65% pale
25% flaked barley
10% roasted

Mash very low (~150F)

1 60 minute hops addition to get a BU:GU of about 0.9

Nottingham or another highly attenuative yeast.

How about a kolsch? Or maybe a clone of New Belgium's "Hoppy Bock?" I'm a big fan of darker, maltier brews, but I gotta say I do love the kolsch & the Hoppy Bock.

Its topics like these that make me wish software/websites like beersmith or the HBT recipes list had an app where you enter what you have in stock and how you brew (AG/PM/AE) and it would provide a list of what you can make. That or I wish I were motivated and talented enough of a coder to make my own.
