the roasted malts seem pretty conservative for an oatmeal stout.

Try throwing 2 oz oak for last week of fermenting & 1 cup of rum per 5 gallons @ packaging. I created a pretty mean oatmeal stout & did this at the end. Definitely a winner!

Cheers!

Okay... How about now... It's more like Russian Imperial though now, 75% pale malt base, 25% roasted malts, then adjusted for 15% oats. Slightly more hops from BC Goldings. The FG seems a little high though...

The site has the stats on the beer and it lists SRM at being 65. Playing around with the numbers in beersmith I had to use quite a bit of carafa and roast barley to hit that number.

That's funny because last night I hit an SRM of 60+ in BrewPal but backed the roasted malts out. I guess I missed that detail in my research although I'm sure I must have seen it the first couple of looks at the Firestone Walker site.

I will revise later this evening and post the revision. Is it okay to basically double the roasted malts? Won't carafa only contribute to head retention?

Update:

I brewed this up 2 weekends ago with mixed results. One batch finished about 1.054 and the next 1.082. No worries though! I also added 2/3 of a cup of Dutch cocoa powder at flameout to help balance the sweetness.

The small beer was at 1.010 after 5 days but a little green; it is quite a good stout with some coffee flavor. It will go to the keg this weekend.

The big beer will get aged and oaked.

Win-win!

Cheers,

-Will
