What to brew with this grain mixture?
« on: October 11, 2014, 03:03:43 PM »
I recently ordered several grains from my LHS. These were to be packed individually but were not. Now I have a mixed bag of the following lb. quantities:

12.25 Munich I
1 Pale Chocolate
.5 Special Roast
1.5 80L Crystal
.75 40L Crystal
8.25 Maris Otter

I am trying to come up with a recipe to brew with this mixed bag.  I thought about making a 10 gallon recipe of Dunkelweizen. 1/2 this mixture and 1/2 wheat. Any suggestions on other styles as well will be appreciated. Any help on this?

I'd add some Roast Barley and brew a big Porter.

I was thinking Baltic Porter.
