i just made one almost identical to this. used jamil's from the brewing classic styles book. I used wl 002 yeast, though. It went from 1.060 to 1.020, both a little higher than anticipated but fine by me. Will be drinking it in about a week.

This turned out very nice. It was based on a few recipes including jamils. I mashed at 151-152 and it went down to 1.012 FG. I like my stouts a bit dry so this turned out nice. 1 week in keg and it was great..it is high on the end of oats so rice hulls helps but the mash is gummy for sure.

I just brewed this today and pitched into a whitelabs irish ale yeast cake from an irish red ale. It started fermenting about 45 minutes later and there is already a thick layer of krausen.

This is a god damn nice beer. I brewed it because it was the most simple oatmeal stout recipe on this site and it is great. I will brew this again, but i will roast the oats in the oven next time around.

It is simple..roasting the oats would be nice..It fits on the sweeter smoother side of oatmeal stouts...If you like more roasty stouts I would up the roasted malt and decrease the crystal malt a bit..

I'm thinking about doing a PM of this. Swap out some of the MO for LME, leave a couple #s of it in with the other grains and the oats.

My damn LHBS stopped stocking liquid yeasts because they were having to deal with too many expired packages.....
Is there a yeast on the list (what I have in-house) below I could sub for the Irish Ale yeast to achieve similar results (or atleast make a good oatmeal stout)?

WLP002 - English ale yeast
WLP013 - London Ale yeast
1056-american ale
nottingham
S-05
S-04
various wheat yeasts.....

Notti, 04 or 05 pending on how dry you want it.

I just made a PM version of this and added some chocolate to the boil. Might have miscalculated my conversion from AG to PM though. Came out at 1.070. We'll hafta see what it does now.
