Default Please help me turn these leftovers into a great beer

Hi, all.

It's the end of my first brewing season, and I have the following sitting around leftover, for various reasons. Does anyone have any suggestions for making them into a great brew? I can do a partial mash, I'm comfortable with that, though I think the only grains I have left don't need them. I have a 5 gal. kettle, and would like to make a 5gal batch.

Thanks in advance...

Grains:

.75 lb biscuit
1lb carapils
.25lb caramunich
.5lb honey malt
.75 lb special b
.75 lb aromatic
.75 lb caravienne
.5lb carafa III

Fermentables:
2 lb dark DME
2.5 lb light dme
1 lb dark candi syrup
1 tin lyle's golden syrup
molasses
turbinado
brown sugar
buttload of corn sugar

Hops:
8 oz centennial
1 oz cascade
1 oz williamette
.75 oz glacier

Yeasts (washed and in the fridge)
White Labs Antwerp Ale
Wyeast: Northwest Ale, Trappist High Gravity, Abbey Ale II,

Also, bottle-harvested Bell's Two-Hearted Ale yeast

(I have reserved some DME for making a starter)

So its almost 4 am and I am really bored and wide awake. So here you go.

This will need to be a PM so.

Baltic Porter

1 Can golden Liquid
2# Dry Dark
2.5# Dry Light
1# corn sugar.

.5# carafa III
.5# carapils
.25# caramunich

.75oz Centennial (60)
.25oz Centennial (30)

Og 1.073
Fg 1.018
SRM 22
ABV 7.2
IBU 34

Not sure if the caramunich works in there but the other ingredients to fit style guildlines. The corn sugar is just to boost the abv without pushing the FG higher.
Carapils to add some more gravity to the finish since all the extract will leave it pretty light.

That sounds good, Arneba, thanks! Any other suggestions. And HB, I was tempted to throw it all in, but I'd like to be able to drink this sometime within a year.

I think Arneba28's recipe looks pretty good. Go for it.
For the yeast, I'd use the Northwest Ale. Not sure what the Belgians would do to a Porter style beer, but if you're feeling adventurous, through one in.

At my house we just love making stuff up. We throw in anything in the cupboards with any LME we have around the house. Honey and syrups are normal but canned potatoes and Darjeeling tea are weird.

I say mash the grain and throw it all in a pot. (Well I would save most of the hops for later.) then serve the beer to your bud light drinking friends. I often dye the beer blue as well. We call it "party beer."

It is more fun than you think. You get to go and look in the back of the cupboard and wonder things like, "How do you mash canned tomatoes?" and "Do you think Fruit Loops have too many preservatives to try and mash them?"

For better explanation (if needed) check out our cooking show on our website.
