If you read my Mr. Beer post, you know that I have been wanting to do an oatmeal stout. I went to my LHBS and told the guy what i wanted to do and even brought him to the Samuel Smith's Oatmeal Stout recipe here on this forum (of which he was very familiar).
I told the guy that I only had the Mr. beer fermenter and he basically said that was no problem. I asked him if he had the extract so it would be as easy as the Mr. Beer and he asked what I had against having fun with it? He then set me up with everything that I needed for a partial mash and sent me merrily on my way.
So, I have just finished bottling my first Mr. Beer kit brew and now I am preparing to do my first partial mash! I just need to go get a new pot (because I dont have a big enough one) to do this and Im going to brew tonight!
here is a pic of my new toys that will be brewing in about an hour! WISH ME LUCK!!
