# 8.5 Pale 2-row
# 1 Flaked Oats
# 1/2 Crystal 90
# 1/2 Black Patent Malt
Chinook (13%) .40 oz. @ 60 min. (24.9 IBU)
Cascade (5.4%) .50 oz. @ 15 min. (3.5 IBU)
Willamette (4.5%) 1 oz. @ 5 min. (3.6 IBU)
I think you're recipe will work.
I just whipped up an oatmeal porter for a 12.5 gallon batch.
18# Baird's pale ale malt.
2# Fawcett Oat Malt
1# Baird's Crystal 150L
1# Fawcett Pale Chocolate Malt
1/2# Fawcett Roasted Barley
1/2# Fawcett Black Malt
Since I am trying to get rid of my Bravo hops.... I used those.
40g Bravo 11.3%AA for 60 minutes
40g Bravo 11.3%AA for 15 minutes
WLP037 Samuel Smith yeast.
The only comment I have for yours is that I might recommend a going with 4oz black malt and 4oz roast barley with a 8oz chocolate malt.
