Default The Stout Experiment: Rolled Oats vs. Flaked Barley vs. Flaked Rye vs. Flaked Wheat

This experiment was to test the performance of flaked rye, flaked barley, flaked wheat, and rolled oats in five batches of Stout. The recipe was as follows:

Original Gravity: 1.055
Final Gravity: 1.018
IBU: 36
Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 14days @ 65F

4# Extract
2# Pale malt
0.5# roasted Barley (350l)
0.75# chocolate (330l)
0.75# victory
0.5# crystal 40
0.5# crsytal 120
1# ________________
1oz Zeus @ 60 minutes

Mashed the 2# Pale at 156F for 60 min, took the pale out, then steeped the specialty grains for 30. Removed, brought to a boil, and added the extract and hops.


The 1#___________ has five combinations in each 5 gallon batch:
1# Rolled Oats
1# Flaked Barley
1# Flaked Wheat
1# Flaked Rye
.25# Rolled Oats, .25# Flaked Barley, .25# Flaked Wheat, and .25# Flaked Rye


I'll let you know what happens!

Sounds like a cool experiment. I'm really surprised there were no replies on the day he made this post.

Ah, yes, I didn't see that people had responded. I brewed with three others - so we're going to taste them tonight, I'll talk with them, and we'll write down our opinions by tomorrow night!

I'm also curious to hear the results!

Another curiosity: why didn't just mash the pale malt and your specialty grains together? Limited kettle space?
