Default Oyster stout

Anyone had one? How was it? We were at a gathering the other night and we started talking about stouts. I brought up the oyster stout and everyone thought I was nuts/sounded disgusting. So I want to make some to see how it tastes. Maybe a 2.5gal brew. Any good recipes floating around?

Is it a brand or "flavor" or beer. Never heard of either. Don't think i would be at all interested in an oyster flavored beer. Sounds yucky

Yes, they are (were?) actually stouts brewed with oysters. As I despise oysters, it sounds like an absolutely disgusting idea to me. However, others seem to have enjoyed them.

Yards Brewing up to a point in time used oysters in their Love Stout and it was good stuff.

Don't knock it 'tll you try it....At least in the Yards example you didn't taste "oysters" and if no one told you, you'd never guess they were used. IIRC, there was a nice subtle smokey and light briney influence on the flavor that worked well with the stout profile.

Recipe from BYO:

I've heard of oyster stout but never tried it. It's probably not bad (I'll eat or drink pretty much anything).

I've read some very old beer recipes that called for meat in the brew, I think it was supposed to add nutrients and/or protein. That was back in the days when beer was like liquid food for people.

Maybe bacon or beef jerky brew? That's good drinkin'!

Thanks for the replys, been so busy forgot to check my thread. :P Anyways, I seem to have gotten the same responce here as I got at the dinner table the other day. I def. want to try one if I can find a smaller vessle to ferment it in as im not sure I want to make 5 gals of it. I don't think the taste of the Oyster would come through like many would think, I think it would be a very slight taste, maybe a tad salty depending on how much Oyster product you used. Ill brew some up and give it to my buddys as my "House Stout" and see how they like it before they find out it was brewed with oysters. I think I will try and brew BYO recipe, their description sounds good enough to me
