    athumb..athumb..Hi again guys, I would really appreciate some suggestions as to what I can brew with a few ingredients I have, I have done kits and all grain but never extract/dry
    I can’t order any grains until the end of the month so this is all I’ve got.
    500g of light spray malt
    500g of medium spray malt
    500g of wheat spray malt

    100 g of Citra
    100g of Hersbrucker
    40g of Sorachi Ace
    100g of Galena
    100g of Pacific Gem

    Yeast is Californian Common

    Can I make anything from that??
    I’ve not a clue what to throw into this.
    Any help welcome

    How about 15L, all the spray malt ang 200g table sugar. Select one hop and do a short boil of a high alpha hop and then and a small later addition post boil. Then dry hop after fermentation, Pacific Gem could be interesting. Citra is Citra and there are a number of Hersbruckers.

    Boil need not be all 15L, of course! That could make it a quick brewday and no doubt it will be beer.

    Thanks Slid, good shout, I wasn’t sure about mixing the three dry malts.
    I’ve never tried Pacific Gem, or Galena

    You could make a session NEIPA with all your dme and some flaked oats from the supermarket. As @Slid says, 15 litre batch. Hop late and dry hop with your citra, sorachi, galena and maybe some pacific gem.

    Edit
    Just noticed you only have cali common yeast. I reckon it would still make a good beer and arguably still a NEIPA

    Also, you might need to cook the oats first, not sure if they would convert otherwise. Ive never brewed an extract batch

    This will not work with flaked oats. You need either malted oats or a combination of base barley malt and flaked oats.

    Yeah true. If you have a small amount of malted barley left over somewhere you could do a cereal mash.

    Thanks guys, it’s on!
    15l batch
    Small bittering addition, a massive late hop and an equal dry hop athumb..
