I planned on brewing a basic oatmeal stout today. Here's my recipe...

- 9.4 lbs British Pale
- 1.0 lbs flaked oats
- 0.75 lbs Chocolate malt
- 0.75 lbs Victory
- 0.5 lbs Crystal 80
- 0.5 lbs Black Roasted Barley

- 1.8 oz. EKG

I'd like to add some chocolate and coffee. Any recommendations on numbers for the 2? Doesn't have to be Breakfast Stout amounts. Just something noticeable to make it a more complex drinking experience.

Kegged this beer this weekend. It tasted wonderful. I like chocolate so I put 1/2 the nibs during the boil and 1/2 in the secondary. Came out great.

Drinking my first brew tonight. It's good but I'd skip the nibs I added in secondary, they just don't belong. Just noticed a secondary addition isn't listed in the OP, not sure why I added them.

Christmas next year? 3 weeks is WAY too early for this brew.

Cracked open a bottle today after 3 weeks just to see where things are at. Man this is a great recipe. All the flavors are there, and are blending nicely. I only did 1.5 ounces of cold-brewed coffee at bottling, so I wouldn't say mine is too "coffee forward" like a lot of people have said about this brew when it is young. And the smell - heavenly.

One thing: I accidentally added the priming sugar straight to the bottling bucket (didn't boil it in water - I know, idiot). The beer is carbonated, but I'd like a bit more carbonation. Will the beer continue to carbonate over the next few months as it sits in my basement, or is the carbonation process pretty much done after 3 weeks?

It took mine a while to fully carbonate. High alcohol and long aging stress the yeast, but they'll get there.
