Hello all,

I'm trying to use my hops and specialty grains before purchasing more, and would love some help creating a recipe with what I've got. I do 2.5 gallon batches, typically. I used to brew 1 gallon batches so I have small amounts of lots of ingredients leftover. I'm overwhelmed with choices :)

Fermentables: GW high color pale (3L)
Weyermann Vienna
Munich II (10L)
Breiss light DME

Specialty grains: I have a little bit of lots of different grains. Varying amounts of: C10, C40, C60, C120, British crystal 60L, carahell, Victory, Carafa I, Midnight Wheat, Flaked wheat, carapils

Hops: Cascade, Chinook, Cluster, EKG, Galena, Magnum, Northern Brewer, Perle, Saaz, Sterling, Triumph

Yeast: Mangrove Liberty Bell, Mangrove CA lager, Lalbrew Voss kveik

I don't care for NEIPAs, Belgians, or Weizens, and I love pales/IPAs, Ambers, browns, pretty much all American styles. I also enjoy amber/dark lagers, or a hoppy light lager (IPL style), and British pales/bitters.

Thanks so much!!

You could brew almost any of the styles you mentioned above.

Pale Ale suggestion:
GW 3L - 90%
C40 - 5%
Munich - 5%

You can vary the amounts depending on your preferences.

Hops:
Galena - 60min 25-30 IBU
Cascasde & Chinook - .5 oz each @10min
Cascasde & Chinook - .5 oz each @0min

Mangrove Liberty Bell yeast

Looks great, thank you so much! Are the hop amounts for a 5 gal or 2.5 gal batch?

Yes sorry for the I forgot about the small batch size. For the bittering charge, you are looking for 25-30 IBU, however much that is with your hop AA. For the 10min and flameout additions, those are based on a 5 gal batch so you would half.

Looks like you have all the ingredients for a California Common (Anchor Steam clone).

72% GW pale
15% Munich
8% C40
4% Victory
1% Midnight wheat or Carafa I - I think most recipes call for chocolate but at 1% or less of the bill either of these should be fine

Northern Brewer Hops at 60, 15 and Flameout for a total of 40 IBU this might be close:
0.5 oz at 60
0.5 oz at 15
0.5 oz at flameout

Mangrove CA lager yeast

Instead of an Anchor clone, I was thinking something more Marzen/Festbier like. I think the IBUs are high for the style, but I'm okay with that. I would love some feedback on the recipe. Thanks :)
