Starting with ~3.5 gallons of cold water, steep all specialty grains and oatmeal in steeping bag while bringing up temperature to 170, shut of flame, and let grains steep for additional 10-15 minutes. Add both liquid and dry extracts while waiting for wort to boil. Add, 1.5 oz hops @ initial boil, 1 tsp Irish moss @ 30 minutes in and final .5 oz hops @ 10 minutes left. Cool wort to ~ 80 degrees ASAP and add water to achieve ~5.5 gallons of wort.

Pitch yeast!

If not kegging, 3/4 cup priming sugar for batch and sit in fermenting temp for 2 weeks and then REFRIGERATE! (Bottles explode if left in too warm temps!)

If kegging (preferred)
After fermentation schedule, keg @ 20 psi for 2-3 days, then reduce to 10 psi. If possible pump Co2 through the beer outtake and purge any remaining oxygen. (This assures real good carbonation, but not necessary) Great dark tan, thick head that if poured out of tap, somewhat mimic's Guinness Draught foamy dance!
