Belfast Bay Brewing Company's McGovern Oatmeal Stout Clone
10 # UK Pale Malt
1 # Flaked Oats
1.25 # Flaked Barley
0.5 # Roasted Barley
0.5 # Victory Malt
0.6 #Chocolate Malt
2 Oz EKG
Large Starter of Burton Ale yeast by White labs
Mashed for an hour at 158 with 31 quarts H2O (No sparge)
Preboil Gravity: 1.056
Blowoff Tube was NECESSARY with this brew.
Bottled straight from primary with 2.5 oz corn sugar and 2.5 oz dark DME
Room temp for 3+ weeks
Fridge for 3 weeks minimum.
Its got a few more IBU's than the original, so probably 1.5 oz EKG would be sufficient, but its basically spot on. Either way its delicious.
The apple aroma is from the yeast, check it out http://www.whitelabs.com/beer/strains_wlp023.html
I hope you enjoy it. This was an excellent beer.
