I forgot to add it into the recipe, butI'm thinking of also putting some coffee in the secondary.

While I'm not quite saavy enough to "critique" your recipe, I will let you know that I think that's an awesome idea---and you should run with it.

I also think adding a little caffeine boost to it is a good idea, since it's a 'Daystarter Stout'.

I'll be monitoring this thread to see how it turns out.
Good luck

So how did this one turn out? Did you add coffee to the secondary? I like this idea a lot, especially using what is essentially a low gravity oatmeal stout as the base.

I just kegged it today, so I'll know for sure in a week. It tasted good flat and warm.

I screwed up my mash, and had to add some extract to it in primary to up the ABV.

As far as coffee...
I ground up half a pound of coffee, and soaked it overnight in a pint of vodka. I strained it, and added the liqour to the secondary.
The coffe flavor is not subtle at all. It's a little strong, but that may change with cold and carbonation.

Yeah, I way overdid it with the coffee. I just tasted like cold black coffee.
Age did not fade it.
If I were to brew this again, I'd probably cut it back to a quarter pound or so.
