The Amber malt srm I have used is around 35 L. I went with 5% in my bitter. I also went with a small amount of choc malt to get my colour up without using a higher percentage of Amber malt.

Hmm, I wonder if you could take up a chunk of it making a "ten penny" clone or something in that style

ten penny might work it also might help get rid of the sack of peated malt sitting beside it :| . Sometimes I don't think before I buy stuff.

It’ll take you forever to use that much. Don’t go overboard on it and make a bad beer just to use it up. Try trading it off. I have a bunch of Munich and oat malt, I’d trade you a pound or two for some. There’s probably more, I can check my inventory tomorrow.
