My only thought was APA with citra and idaho.  And I should say I am not against a trip to the LHBS, I just need to get rid of most of this stuff.

Kitchen Sink American Brown Ale

All of the above except save the Perle and Kazbek for lagers.

Many of us would be on a strict liquid diet if it weren't for pretzels.

So, I could go 10 gallon and split, but I was thinking 7 or less

At 10 gal., you're making a very hoppy APA (the dark wheat isn't as dark as I was thinking).

At 7 gallons, you're making an American IPA.

I would take the brewers malt, pils, and corn (maybe a touch of C10) and the Perle hops and make a cream ale.  Put in the Kazbek at the end (or maybe split the perle and kazbek for both early and late additions).
Risk of failure should be no deterrent to trying.

That was my thought, too. 75% 2Row, 20% flaked maize, 5% 10L.  18-20 IBU Perle/60 mins, a little Kazbek @ flameout. Mash 150F/90 mins. 1056 @ 60F.

Sorry, I forgot to say either the US-05 or the 060 for the yeast.  I don't know anything about 060, but I'm sure either american ale type yeast would be fine.  1450 would probably work OK as well.

True enough. A good ole APA with Idaho and Citra would always be tasty.

Should I pick up galaxy/pils and make an IPA?
