Oats are actually more expensive at the grocery store than my LHBS. I don't complain.

I've only ever used the Quaker Oats.

Holy hell, I birthed a 3 year old, 500 post thread? I'm usually a threadkilla!

When you clone a beer as epic as FBS, it's bound to happen!

heya DD, good to see you're still checking out this thread. congrats on your baby

do you have any updates to the recipe? any tricks you've been using to make this stout even more amazing than it already was?

based on my experience, and that of a few others, seems like the coffee flavor comes in a bit strong. when i re-brew, i'll be cutting the coffee additions back to 1.5 oz (each) instead of the original 2 oz. could be due to using fancy high-end (i.e. more intense) coffee.

maybe a more pertinent question: when was the last time you brewed this?!?

Haven't really made it since, but I'm feeling inspired all of a sudden!

Glad you guys like it. BYO started the clone. I just tinkered. And you guys took it to whole new levels.

Cheers!

Well curiosity got the best of me.... I tried a bottle after just one week. I know I know... A wasted beer but I didn't have much else in the house.

Real pod carbonation. Nice 2 finger head. But it smelled like my morning cup of coffee. And it tasted like coffee that was put down an oak luge.

Body was nice. Not thin. Color is great.

I was hoping beyond hope that it would be ready for Christmas but hey, who wouldn't want a breakfast stout in June, right?

Flaked oats are what you want. They're the same as "instant oats", which are just cut into smaller pieces than rolled oats. More info here: http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f39/roll...d-oats-134530/
Like I said above, I can get flaked oats for about $1.00 per pound at my local natural foods store.

Ours was ready to drink after four weeks in the bottle and tastes like a proper breakfast stout. You shouldn't need to wait until after Christmas.
