Will do. I did the minimash last night; 1 lb of 2-row with 2 lbs of instant oats. The whole house smelled like breakfast at midnight! I sparged with like 6 cups of water and boiled it down for an hour. I didnt throw in any hops becuase my IBUS were calculated by beersmith with the oats included in the original stout.
All went well except I cracked my autosiphon near the bottom. Thankfully it still worked pretty good, just made a mess when I took it out of the wort/beer. I racked the stout on top of the oatmeal extract, and it seems like everything blended really well. We'll find out in around 2 months!
BTW, this beer will be entered in Taco Mac's homebrew competition sponsored by Red Hare Brewing in Marietta GA. The winner gets brewed in a 20BBL batch by Red Hare and served at all the metro-Atlanta Taco Mac locations.
