I had breakfast duties again for the SWMBO and LOWMBO (not sure what you'd call the 2 year old daughter...) and made oatmeal.
As I was adding the oats to the hot milk, I noticed this brand had a very grainy look to it just like crushed/milled grains for AG brewing - or pretty close. This is Coach's Oats from COSTCO.
I searched on that name and nada - lots on oats though. So while eating, I thought - hmm people like bread and "bready/yeasty" beer, why not oatmeal beer? Not Oatmeal Stout or Porter, but something where the oat and sweet flavor of vanilla, brown sugar and honey blended in for a light flavor.
Anyone done something like this? I'm getting onto Beersmith as soon as the SWMBO lets me on the main PC to play around....
I assume some tweaking will be in order since most oatmeal as adjunct I assume use the flat oats or steel cut? Wondering what kind of adjustments would be made for the difference in fiber and carbs, etc...
Anyone think this will taste as good as I'm thinking, or would it taste like garbage?
