Splitting a batch of Stout Help
I am going to brew an oatmeal stout (5 gallon AG batch). I want 1/2 to be regular and 1/2 I want to do a Chocolate Oatmeal Stout. I assume I would just split the batch in secondary.
So the questions
- is that a good way to do it?
- what are other options?
- what kind of chocolate should I use for each type of split?
Thanks in advance
