What to brew with these ingredients?

    6 lbs Vienna
    5 lbs Boheniam Pilsner
    5 lbs Light Wheat
    12 oz Special B
    10 oz Crystal 60
    8 oz Victory
    6 oz Midnight Wheat
    4 oz Crystal 20
    Enough Golden Light DME to start a Microbrewery

    8 oz Centennial leaf
    8 oz Nugget pellet
    5 oz Centennial pellet
    5 oz WGV

    I need simple for the BrewCast. I am not limited to this list, but using as much of it as possible would be nice.
    I'm thinking a WGV based bitter with a nice malty backbone or an easy drinkin' stout.

    Oh Right. Important info there.

    10 gallon finished batch
    5 gallon MLT so a max of 16 lbs of grain. Then I'll add DME to get to the right OG.

    I also have S-04, S-05, WLP001 and WLP005 handy. I'd rather use the liquid just to use it, the dry is kinda of my back up, hey I'm brewing this weekend and forgot yeast, yeast.

    Hmmmm.... any pale malt?
    how about all the Vienna and pilsner ... a pound of crystal ... and a ton of dme ...
    Say 2 or 3 ounces of centennial for bittering and all of the WGV at 5 min.

    reverse the hop schedule and you'll have a nice pale ale.

    I don't know Kenny. That's why I'm asking you. Sounds nice though? Maybe split the hops up a bit from 10 minutes down to flame out?

    You mean the quantities or the hops? Or both? I've had 20 gallons of Centennial pale ale/IPA this year. My palate needs to see other hops for a little while.

    just the hops. centennial is a waste as a bittering hop.

    the vienna, the pils, and a bit of crystal would make a nice lager.

    The WGV as a bittering hop would be a crime .... flavor/aroma heaven

    10 to flameout is perfect .... I was just trying to keep it very simple

    Ah. Right. Maybe I'll complicate it up just a bit.

    I'm so confused. The two people on this forum that my taste buds agree with are arguing! I don't know what to do!

    Just get drunk and start dumping stuff in. It'll be good. Just go light on the hops and it don't matter much what you use when. 90% of the time it works for me 100% of the time.

    kenny is focusing on the hops, he's succumb to the dark side! don't listen to him!

    HERE

    So I just tossed this together based on Kenny's thougths (since no one else actually gave me a recipe input)
    Here's a couple questions...

    What do you think about the 005? I think I like it. I've only ever used it in stouts.
    I really have no Idea what a Vienna/Pilsner base is going to taste like. No idea.
    What about first wort hop? I think I'd like to finish around 50 IBUs.

    That recipe looks pretty good, I'm a fan of ESB type beers. I use a lot of 1968/002 in those styles, never tried the 005 to be honest.

    toss in the victory and maybe just an ounce or two of the midnight wheat too. i'm not a white labs brewer, so i'm not familiar with that yeast, but from the descriptions it sounds good.

    Not normally a fan of victory ... but it just might help this one out ... and yes to the midnight wheat .. if you had it, I would say toss a couple ounces of chocolate malt ...

    I have room in the MLT. Victory is in. Midnight wheat should lend and interesting color tinge.
