What to make with these ingredients

(1/3) > >>

tomthebrewer:
On hand I have:

Plenty of 2-Row
~1# Black malt
~1$ Roasted Barley
1+ #s Chocolate
1/2# Crystal 120
1/2# Special Roast

Fuggle, EKG, Mt. Hood, Cascade, and Centennial Hops

An assortment of dry ale yeast and a Wyeast 1450 slurry.

I was planning on making a porter, but I'm open to suggestions. I'd really like to make an APA, but I would like some light crystal to do that.

All ideas are appreciated!

mtbrewer:
Toast some 2-row, use the 120 and make your APA. Bitter with the Cent. and finish with cascades, sounds good to me. Happy brewing. :)

tomthebrewer:
I've never toasted malt before. What temp and how long do you leave it in the oven? What kind of flavors do you get?

here you go. I would go with the 15 minute dry, I have made APA's this way and turned out well. I think you only need to wait a week for the longer roast times. Make sure to keep an eye on it and give it a stir or shake, to ensure even toasting.

Looks like an American Brown Ale may be in order.  8)
