I'm challenging the belief that all bitters must have a caramel component to be true to style; this is more akin to golden or summer bitters though I bumped the color a hair with the inclusion of 2 oz pale chocolate. I'll leave the yeast up to you, but I love 1469 and 1275 for most all my English ales.

Never heard of Oat Malt, but the recipe looks delic. For a name, how's about Wee Willy Bitter.

Oat malt is tits. I originally stocked it for the medieval ale I've written about previously, but I've been tempted to brew an all-oat malt bitter.

Awesome name, BTW.

Find some oat malt. Trust me, you'll dig the nuttiness.

I believe you! I added .5 pounds of golden naked oats to Jamil's Red Rocket clone, and I loved it. But, I can either brew this week, or order something.........hmmmmm. Tough choice!

This recipe looks great. I am hosting a "session ale Throwdown" brew-off in the spring, and I was looking for a nice bitter that was just a bit different. I think I will brew this one.

I've had this on tap for a couple weeks now and am enjoying it very much. The oat malt definitely adds something unique that I haven't experienced before. Personally, I would like a little somethign extra in there. I'm toying with the idea of adding a touch more choc. malt next time, maybe just 2-4 oz of the standard variety. I also think to myself every so often that it could use some caramel notes. But over all this is a really great session beer! And I bought 3 lb of oat malt so I'll definitely be making it again.
Cheers!
