Just wanted to give a review on this recipe: Followed OP recipe except added 1.25pds of oatmeal because that's what I had. Its been in the primary for 10 days right now and I just did a gravity reading and tasted a sample. All I can say was "Wow" this is a damn good recipe with little to no bite. Plan on making this one more often.

Dan

This looks like the first thing I will brew once my grain order arrives. However I only have a little bit of cara-munich III and vienna malt, can I just make up for the crystal and victory with extra 2-row, or sub with marris otter to get a biscuity flavor. I was also wondering if it would be a good idea to pitch this onto a ringwood yeast cake that should be available by the time I'm ready to brew. Any thoughts?

First all grain batch, turned out excellent. Very smooth, yet crisp. Distinctive taste as well. Great style and good after taste. So good I'm sharing some with my brother-in-law as a late christmas present.

Highly recommend and will definitely brew again!

Question:

At this time of year I can only ferment at 68-70. I noticed you ferm at 64 for this. While there will be some issues there, do you think it will still be smooth and tasty?

I had no problems- my low was 65 but only reached that days after fermentation. I am usually around the same range as you 66-69. biggest piece of advice is to "age it." It tastes better the second month, even better the third month- now I only have two bottles left!

That's my plan too! I mean having only 2 bottles left

Thanks!

Ok Im sold! Been wanting to do an oatmeal stout since the get go. Looks like I'm pulling the trigger on this one tomorrow. Following the OP recipe exact except using a full 7# of 2-row. This is only my 2nd all grain so I'm not exactly confident in my efficiency yet, although the 1st attempt seemed to land me close to 80%. I will post the outcome. Wish me luck!

Brewed this up last night, but I missed my target gravity and accidentally hit 1.064! I hope this pans out.

Cool. Brewed it twelve days ago today. Just bottled and kegged last night. Very tasty from the sample I took. I'd been drinking on a growler of an oat stout from a local brew pub that I always really like, and I think I may be liking this one better once it's carbed. Great success!! Thx
