so I've done a handful of ag brews, and i think i've gotten it down fairly well. My efficiency hits around the mid 80's.
So, i thought i would try something a little more daring, and decided on the Stone Vertical Epic 08 clone from their site.
Stone Vertical Epic Ale
and with beersmith this is the recipe i figured out
for a 5 gallon batch
13.50 lbs Pale Malt 2 row -87.10%
( i assume stone uses US 2 row, so i will too)
1 lb Flaked Oats - 6.45 %
1 lb Table Sugar - 6.45 %
(their recipe calls for candi syrup, but lhbs doesent have it)
mashing at 148 for two hours. I do the bobby m, no mash out double batch sparge method.
So I've never used flaked oats before. is there anything i should know about mashing with them?
Has anyone ever tried this recipe before? if so, how did it come out?
