My first recipe. It is going to be an oatmeal stout.
5 lbs Alexanders LME
1/2 lb Roasted Barley
1/2 lb Coffee Malt (Simpson's)
1/2 lb Caramel 60L
1/2 lb flaked barley
1 lb Golden Naked Oats, Simpson's (UK)
1 oz East Kent Goldings (60 min)
1 oz East Kent Goldings (30 min)
WL004 - Irish Ale Yeast
Originally it was also going to be my 1st AG brew. But I can't yet.
My first question - did I substitute enough LME for the base malt?
Also, the more I look at this, the more I think I may be over-doing it with the specialty grains (in terms of amounts - 1/2 lb each). The perfectionist in me questions this, but the homebrewer instinct says, of course, "don't worry!"
Thanks and HAPPY NEW YEAR HOMEBREWERS!!!
