Beer Style: Oatmeal Stout (13C)
Recipe Type: extract
Yield: 5 US gallons

Oatmeal Stout


This beer improves substantially after about 2 weeks in the bottle, as hop aroma subsides and the large amount of roasted barley assumes it's place in the forefront. It's my favorite beer to date, but if I were going to brew it again I might cut back on the roasted barley by about .25 pound, and lessen the boiling hops (either to 1 ounce of Bullions, or 1.5 ounce of some lower alpha hop). Whitbread ale yeast was used because of the low attenuation rate: this stout is NOT sweet, but has lots and lots of body.

Steep the Oats, and the cracked grains for 1/2 hr in cold water. Heat mixture and remove grains as boil is reached. Throw in malts and make your wort. Boil Bullions for 45 minutes, Willammette for 5-7 minutes. Have fun.
