    I'm thinking of pulling together some of the ingredients i've got laying around to do an impromptu AG brew with a few spare hours on saturday.
    Just looking for some ideas as it's been a long week.
    I could always do a quick dash to the local HBS in the morning if i need any other grains. Here's what I've got at the moment.

    Grains

    wheat - 500g
    Pilsner malt - 2.5kg
    Wheat flakes - 500g
    Munich - 500g
    Oat husks - 500g
    Maris Otter - 4kg
    Black malt - 400g
    Chocolate malt - 500g
    Crystal - 1kg
    Terrified wheat - 1kg Argh

    Hops

    Northern brewer - 100g
    Mount hood - 100g
    Cascade - 100g

    Yeasts

    Safale US05
    Safale S04
    WL WLP300 Hefewiezen ale
    WL WLP400 Belgian Wit ale
    Brewferm wheat yeast
    Safbrew S33
    SafbrewWB06

    I'm thinking i'll leave the chocolate and dark malts out for the next one, just thought i'd add them to the list incase someone had an amazing idea to add them to the mix.

    I did come across this which i thought was a bit of a curveball:-
    http://www.homebrewersassociation.o...of-the-week-passionfruit-mango-wildfire-wheat
    But don't know which yeast i could sub for it. also thinking i could sub the rice hulls for the oat husks? Or is that just crazy. Gives me time to order some puree in the week.

    Or something like an orange/coriander pale ale?

    you're quite low on hops...I'd either go for a wheat beer with 50/50 pilsner and wheat malts, NB or Mt Hood hops at 60 or 90 mins and none else. WLP400 or Brewferm wheat.

    or just a cascade smash with pilsner malt and us-05 :) maybe some crystal if you want.

    Nothing near the end of boil? I'll definately have to use the WL in the brew. 50/50 with the pilsner and wheat malts sounds good.

    First time i will have used WL been looking forward to it thought after everything i've read. I've just opened the fridge to see a use by of November 2012 so i'm definitely doing this brew tomorrow. How much Saaz, might call for a 9am trip to Doncaster to the HBS. Anything i can do to give it a little twist without going to crazy?

    sorry i apologise :cheers:
