I'm far from an experienced stout brewer (in fact, I've done one, and it's still bottle conditioning - :D ). However...I think maybe cut out one of the roasted barley or black patent.

I used 500g of chocolate malt in mine, and nothing else really dark, and it's as black as the night and has significant 'burnt malt' bitterness (or it did when I tasted it at bottling).

Perhaps a more experienced stout brewer will happen along...

i see so maybe .25 lbs of each?

and thanks for your input


i've done 5-6 stouts but i want some big this time. lots of flavour both subtle and strong with lots of mouth feel - texture...

You are exactly right.

brewhead, I'd drop the black patent completely and go with somethign like 1 lb. crystal 120 and .5 lb each of chocolate and roasted barley.

Otherwise, it looks like an EXCELLENT recipe.

on your recomendation sir

i will report back on the progress of THE BIG SWEET OATMEAL STOUT

thanks for the input

Looks nice! I might add that I hope you're serious about it being sweet, because with 1lb of lactose, it definitely will be!

Also, a note on that yeast. It's really flocculant, and will drop out on you. I'm not saying it's a bad choice, just that you might have to rouse them some to get it fermented down properly.

I just brewed up a Sweet Oatmeal Cream Stout.. just transfered it over to the keg tonight, THE DUDE will be over Fri to help me bottle with the beer gun.. So far after the taste, its really good
