As far as the dme, adding it at this point is a little tricky.
Well, the fermentation seemed to last about 4 days. It's actually been in the fermenter for 12 as of this evening. The OG was 1.055 and the FG seems to have stopped at 1.026. What about boiling some cornsugar and adding that?

Seems like at this point the best thing to do might just be to bottle it and let it ride. Worst case scenario is end up with an oatmeal stout that is a little sweet, right?

Yeah, it'll probably be fine. Honey is actually supposed to be added after primary so that's another option.

And when the worst case scenario results in beer, things can't be too bad right?

Well, after additional reading I decided to go with the honey to increase the ABV a bit. Added last night and it's churning away this morning. We'll see how it turns out in about a month I suppose.

Just an update: be careful to let late addition honey ferment out completely. Be patient. I thought mine had. Gravity stopped moving, stayed consistent for 4 days. A month later I had exploding bottles! Not fun.
