Next brew is going to be a porter..So far all I have brewed is a couple IPAs, Pale Ale, Brown, and an Amber. So I haven't ventured into Porters or Stouts yet despite both of them being my favorite styles right after IPAs.
It's being called Under Bite, after my Boxer puppy, who of course has an under bite, just like all boxers. .

I'm mostly concerned about the Grain Bill..I didn't want it to be too roasty, but not as sweet and thick as a stout. Using 1/2 lbs of Flaked Oats, do I need to be concerned about a stuck sparge? Should I add some rice hulls? I've never brewed with oats.
ANY feedback is appreciated!
