I have some old extract that I'm looking to brew, and I'm thinking to use it in stouts and/or porters.

Any comments/suggestions/constructive feedback would be appreciated.

I have:
12 lbs of Williams German Gold LME
About 6 lbs Weyermann's Munich Malt Extract
A couple cans of Munton's light & extra light LME.

BCS calls for Munich extract in a couple of porter recipes, but would it be bad in a stout? Anyone make a stout with significant Munich malt?

Thanks in advance

My 'Best Laid Plans' (see recipe dropdown) is a completely munich based oatmeal stout and it gets rave reviews. Give a munich based stout a try, you won't be disappointed.

I appreciate the recipe, and I'll try something like that. I've done sweet stouts which have been well-received, but I've never done an oatmeal stout.

I tried Brad's recipe and it was pretty good. Mine came out a bit too astringent but my LHBS has a higher than normal roasted barley so its hard to adjust for at times and this recipe had a good bit of chocolate and roast.

I'm about to brew a doppelbock that's uses the vast majority of its base malt as munich with some pilsner and dark crystal.
