So, it turns out I will have some leftover malt from several different batches, enough it seems to make another batch of … what?
A little less than 1/3 of the bill will be Vienna grains, a little less than 1/3 Maris Otter grains, and the balance in Golden malt syrup. Plug it into my Brewer’s Friend and the gravity is about 1058, SRM of 6.58. Seems like a decent session pale, no?
What on earth should I pitch, and how should I hop it? I guess having a canvas that blank is a little overwhelming to me, since most of what I’ve ever brewed has been a modification of a recipe I got from someone/somewhere else.
My inclination is to hop well, and spicy (I like ESB’s and IPA/APa’s a lot), but should I pitch an English ale, a German ale, or even lager it? I don’t know where to begin based on the malt bill. Any suggestions welcome, even though I know it will all come down to personal preference.
