this was the first beer i've tried. just started it last night and it smells fantastic, the gravity came out at 1.035, so ill probably increase the grains on future recipes, or just do a better job of sparging, it was pretty chaotic, due to the grains being too much for the grain bag so we were also using a clean pair of pantyhose for the other grain bag, and with the mardi gras parades going on last night. but its fermenting nicely at 65 and ill tell you how it turns out!

I've been drinking this one out if the keg for about a week now and wanted to givea few days before I posted my thoughts. This is a really good stout and finishes very smooth and clean, but almost a little too clean for me. I've been drinking a lot ofstouts lately and I guess ive come to expect that bit of bite in the finish, this one doesn't have that. And I know it's not supposed to. Don't get met wrong, it is very tasty and easy to drink. I will do this one again, but next time I will try toasting the oats and see if that gives me what I'm looking for. Good recipe though and stays true to the title!

Don't worry about the yeast..... It will carb fine even after several weeks!

its been bottled for a few days an is carbing perfectly, and completely delicous!, it is a tad on the watery side but thats all our fualt. it was our first beer an we through the base grains in a grain bag. and by grain bag i mean we didnt have one big enough so we used some tights. but everyone whos tried it loves it still, awesome recipe

You did all grain your first try at beer? Or is this your first all grain batch. What happened that caued that low of a gravity? Did you step mash?

General question: is it ok to add extract to try and boost the gravity/alcohol between fermentation?

I think you could do that but you'd have to boil it first to sanitize
