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?
