    Oops, your right. Caramel and roasted malts have been converted in the malting or roasting
    process. And wouldn't you know it. The caramel an roasted malts add up to 21 points, so that's
    1.081. My seco...

    As a fellow enthusiast of big hoppy beers, I have a couple thoughts/questions:- overall, it
    looks interesting, how many times have you made it? - 2lbs of caraIII seems like a lot as most
    times it's 1-...

    Unless I'm missing something. 6lbs LME gives you about 43 gravity pointsAt 75% efficiency, PM
    of 3lbs of 2-row might be another 17 pointsSteeped everything else separate (no diastatic power
    present), ...

    I just had the White Oak Jai Alai I found that the wood took the edge off, almost too
    restrained. If I brewed this I would bump the hops up slightly, expect it to be very tropical
    however.

    I would bump up the Carafa to a full pound and replace the Crystal with Victory malt, but that
    is just me. The hops schedule looks great, should be quite tropical smelling and deep
    bitterness. U go Oh...

  • Posted in thread: Imperial Oatmeal Stout on 12-10-2010 at 02:23 PM
    I'd drink it. I don't think 3 lbs of oats will cause too much of a problem lautering. A big
    stout without crystal is up my alley, should be interesting to see how the toastiness from the
    MO, toasted o...

    Stats via Beer SmithNote: Efficiency only 60.00, got poor efficiency from the mini-mash but
    that equally increased the hop utilization. This is a two stage partial mash, see below.6 lbs

    "Doris Get Her Oats", kicking around this modification of one of my stout recipes and wonder if
    I am using too much oat grains. Even with one pound of rice hulls am I looking a stuck mash?
    FYI, I do p...
