That’s right. Today’s the day. It’s supposed to be 90F and sunny, I have the day off from work for “Spring Holiday” so it’s time to clean out all of the ingredients I’ve accrued over the last year and make a … thing. My goal is to use most of the hops for which I have under 1 oz, and most of the grain for which I have under 1 lb in a 5 gallon batch. So here’s my current inventory:

Cascade: .6 oz
Fuggles: .65 oz
EK Goldings: .9 oz
Hallertauer: .1 oz
Marynka: 1 oz
Nugget: .1 oz
Saaz: 1 oz
Styrian Goldings: .25 oz

I may hold onto the Saaz, Hallertau, and Styrian Goldings for another saison later in the summer. Then again, I may not.


Acidulated Malt: 1.5 lbs
Black Malt: .06 lbs
Brown Malt: .88 lbs
Carafa I: .5 lbs
Crystal 60L: .54 lbs
Crystal 80L: .33 lbs
Crystal 120L: .5 lbs
Chocolate Malt: 1.9 lbs
Chocolate Wheat Malt: .06 lbs
Coffee Malt: 1 lb
Roasted Barley: .25 lbs
Rye Malt: 1.5 lbs
Victory Malt: .88 lbs
Flaked Wheat: .9 lbs
Torrified Wheat: 1.25 lbs
Unmalted Wheat: 1.5 lbs

Ditto, wheats, saisons.

Given all of that with the ability to add as much base malt as you wanted, and use any commonly available yeast and put in whatever for adjuncts – sugar, fruit, coffee, what-have-you – and with the goal of using as much of these ingredients as possible, what would YOU make?
