I'd switch the black patent to roasted barley and cut the weight of the black/roast and chocolate at least 25% of not in half. You want about 10% of the grist to be roasted grains. You have over 20%. I wouldn't go more than 0.75 lb of each, probably closer to 0.75 lb. roasted barley and 0.5 lb chocolate malt.

for stout, i would be at LEAST in the mid to upper 1.050 range. Also, consider upping you volume to 5.25 FV. Def use a 2nd, and this increased volume will allow for some loss to end up with 5g to bottle/keg

The gravity is fine. A traditional dry stout is a low gravity beer. The only difference here is the addition of flaked oats.

I was just going to say that dropping them the way you stated would mess up the SRM's. Then I realized I still had it as a dry stout instead of an oatmeal stout. That opened my options a little. Would the 1084 or WLP004 be good to use? We're shooting for kind of a guiness flavor. But, more body and mouthfeel. Sort of a creaminess. Almost like the guiness extra stout, with body. If that makes sense. I started with the beersmith example recipe and kind of modified outwards to what I was looking for. Thank you for your help

Lol. I just moved back down here from Utah county. The beer selection here is poor at best. Where are you from? I created a group for Utah brewers but so far I'm the only one... lol

I guess the BJCP guideline doesn't matter as long as it's a good beer. I've just been trying to stay with-in them because I'm a noob
