Default Oatmeal Stout Priming Suggestions???

I am about to bottle my first oatmeal stout. Can anyone let me know how much priming sugar I should use? My recipe says 5oz wt. Is this good or can anyone give me some better advice. This is only my 4th all grain brew and it looks/smells good.

Thanks

For a 5 gal. batch? I'd go 4 oz. for the style.

Assuming you’re using corn or cane sugar 4 oz would be about right. Stouts generally are not especially carbonated.

I would put even less than that but because I'm not keen on overly gassy beers I tend to err on the side of caution.

If you want to get more precise, this calculator is useful – it has the typical carbonation levels for most beer styles built in: http://www.tastybrew.com/calculators/priming.html.
