I am going to be trying this one very soon. Thanks for the recipe. Will let you know how it turns out. 2BeerSpeer I use Beer Smith and it converts great.

I did convert it to AG at one point. I'm at work right now, but I'll check it tonight when I get home. But yes, like the other poster said, I used Beersmith as well.

BigB, my only other question... What was the benefit of roasting the flaked oats? I only ask because ive never used them before. Is this common to do when using this for any recipe or is it just your personal preference?

Here'e the AG version. Mash at 152-154

8 lbs Pale Malt, Maris Otter (3.0 SRM)
8.0 oz Caramel/Crystal Malt - 60L
8.0 oz Chocolate Malt (450.0 SRM)
1 lb Oats, Flaked (1.0 SRM)
4.0 oz Roasted Barley (300.0 SRM)
1.50 oz Goldings, East Kent [4.50 %] - Boil 90.0 min
1.0 pkg Yorkshire Square Ale (White Labs #WLP037)

Toasting the oats imparts a bit of a nutty flavor and a cookie type aroma in the finished beer.

I can confirm that you want to toast those oats. I wasn't able to do it--my homebrew store crushed the oats along with the other specialty grains--and it tasted like something was missing when I put it into the bottle a week and a half ago.

Yes, I would agree with that statement. I made that mistake as well the first time I made it AG... and it tasted, well kind of one-dimensional.

The recipe calls for a 28 day fermentation in the primary. Is that correct? Should I leave it for 28 days before bottling and then give it 2-4 weeks in the bottle before enjoying?
I hit the OG target dead on, should I just base the time in the primary on hitting the FG target, wait until the gravity reading stays constant for a couple days or wait out the 28 days?

I'm glad BigB added the "And No, that is not too much time!" comment about roasting the oats for 75 mins because my wife was like "75 mins?!?". I was nervous the whole time because it started to smell like the burn was coming, but every time I looked, it was just a nice toasty color.

Thanks for any comments regarding the fermentation time.

I state 28 days because the yeast still continue to do some clean up after FG. But in general, you could get away with 3 weeks. For bottle conditioning, I would wait at least 3 weeks as well... even if they are carbed up, the flavor just doesn't seem to hit its stride until then.
