Default Oatmeal Stout AG to Extract Conversion?

Any chance someone could convert this to extract? Sounds awesome! Thanks in advance!

This beer has been well received by friends and family (of course it was, who doesn't like free beer?). It also got positive feedback from the guys in my homebrew club.



A little background on this recipe: I purchased a pound of galaxy hops at the end of last summer. I got home and cut the bag open and smelled quite a few IPAs/DIPAs in my future. After a few batches, I figured why not try to pound the square peg through the round hole? I'll put some of these hops somewhere they probably won't belong. I have to say, I'm very pleased with the results.



Galaxy oatmeal stout

5 gallons all grain

OG: 1.065 to 1.070

FG: 1.020 to 1.015

IBUS: 64.6 (if you believe beersmith)

color 49.4 SRM (If you're like me and you hate math, it looks like a stout should)



Grain:

9 lbs Maris Otter

.5 lb crystal 60L

.5 lb black patent

.5 flaked barley

1 lb flaked oats

.5 roasted barley

1 lb chocolate malt (I like a blend of 50/50 pale chocolate/regular or regular/120L)

.5 lb crystal 10L



mash in at 154 degrees F for 60 minutes



60 minute boil

1 oz galaxy @ 60

.5 oz galaxy @ 15

whirlfloc/irish moss @ 15

.5 oz galaxy @ 5

.5 oz East Kent Golding @ FO (or willamette, fuggles, whatever "English type" hop you have laying around)



rehydrated Nottingham dry yeast (It's neutral, quick, clean, dependable, cheap, no starter required). If you choose to use liquid yeast, any clean/neutral ale yeast will do. Perhaps even an English strain would do well, I may try it on my next batch.



notes: My efficiency is typically 65% percent or less. If for some reason you choose to brew this and your efficiency is better, adjust accordingly.



Tasting notes: Seems to finish in the 1.018 to 1.020 range, so it leans a little more toward a sweet stout but weighs in around 6.5% abv. Great, creamy head, nice silky smooth body. It reminds me a little bit of those higher end chocolate bars with 85%+ cacao and exotic dried jungle fruits and nuts in there. Decadent in a way. Although a more traditional hop selection would make a respectable beer, I think the galaxy really improved this one and made for a more interesting and complex flavor. A unique and contemplative pint.



This is my first post here. If anyone brews this, let me know how it turns out.

Sounds tasty indeed.

Others might chime in with some more specific advice, but I think you'll have a hard time converting this to extract. I would suggest doing a mini-mash with those specialty grains and a little bit of maris otter or two-row to help convert them. I just brewed something similar this weekend (my first mini-mash in fact.) I simply heated the mash water in a 2 gal stovetop pot, used a BIAB mesh bag, and put it in my oven set to warm. It held around 150 just fine.

You can then either use some DME for the rest of the fermentables or Northern Brewer actually sells Maris Otter extract.

DeBAD, mr samsonite is correct. You can't really translate that recipe to an extract only (or with steeping grain). A mini-mash would be needed to convert the flaked grains. Try a mini-mash with 3 lbs of MO and the 1.5 lbs of flaked grain. Then sub 4 lbs of good UK pale malt extract for the remaining MO. The specialty grains can be added to the mini-mash if you have room, other wise you can steep them.

Unfortunately I only have equipment for extract. I do always steep though. Sounds like I might just have to find a different recipe. Thanks for all the input though.

William's Brewing has a variety of extracts as well, including oatmeal stout. They don't give an exact breakdown of what grains are mashed to make it though, unfortunately. Might be worth a shot though if you're craving some stout.

Moving from steeping to a mini-mash is not a big step. You don't need anything very sophisticated.
