Beer Style: Oatmeal Stout (13C)
Recipe Type: all-grain
Yield: 5 US gallons

Oatmeal Stout


This stout has a smokey aroma---probably due to the large amount of roast barley. Even though it has a lot of hops, it seems balanced. I think that Oatmeal makes the resulting beer quite sweet. If served too cold (say 45 or below) it will be quite bitter. At 50-55 it is like nectar. Sip, sip---writing this article gave me a thirst so I opened up a bottle. Mmm, good stuff.


  • 7 pounds, pale malt
  • 1 pound, roast barley

  • 1/2 pound, light caristan (15--20L)
