Oh, it was great! Bob loved it especially, and we fought over the last bottle.

They should be fine. Anything with clean bitterness should be good. I happened to have used Magnum.

Just ordered this recipe off of Brewmasters Warehouse. Samuel Smith Oatmeal Stout was the beer that got me into beer, and it still remains one of my favorite styles, but for whatever reason, have never made a real one. I'm not modifying a thing, except that I am doing it BIAB, can't wait! I'll update with pics.
Tried to keep up with this signature, but just couldn't.

Yooper, you da woman!!!

I tapped this last weekend and I'm afraid it might not live much longer. 6 weeks old and amazing. I find myself going for this after dinner far more than anything else... I'm eerily drawn to it. I even went back to my brew log to confirm there is no coffee in here. You wouldn't know it.

The keyword here is balance. It's only a 1.017 4.5% beer, but it's got it all.... without anything overpowering something else. Some roast, some bitterness, chocolate, some coffee, a little malt, and about 1 sip in every 5 pints -- chocolate covered raspberry. Who knows, I love it!

Keezer-top glamour shot time...

This is a great beer, but the second time I made it I put a V-bean in it, I personally would not do that again, I'll just brew it as posted.

Yep... need to throw in my props! I did 10gal's of this to give away from Christmas and EVERYONE commented on how awesome this recipe was. I actually only got 2 bottles of it myself for "Quality Control" and I GUARANTEE I'll be making it again. Got my order from Brewmaster's Warehouse and it was easily done. Can't wait for the weather to break to do this again.

Kinda pissed at my LHBS. I sent an email in advance with the grain bill for a partial mash version of this recipe to make sure they had everything and specifically called out the pale chocolate as I know that's an important part of the recipe.

I show up and "we don't stock pale chocolate," also subbed roasted barley for black barley (I went along with it anyway since I really wanted to get this batch started). Just annoying to plan in advance and then get another story when you show up in person and you're semi-committed.

They also don't regularly stock 1335, which I half expected so that's fine, so I went with S04 instead. That part didn't bother me as much as the grain bill.

I know all this is not that big a deal but I wish I could have gotten closer to the original recipe which is clearly something that has been refined and had some thought put into it.

Anyway, /rant and thanks Yoop for the recipe, I'll let you know how my bastardized version comes out.

I don't blame you there.

I'd be pissed if my LHBS just subbed out grains without asking. That's a pretty ****ty thing to do, but is also something that I've heard of happening before.

In the future, make it clear to them that you do NOT want substitutions, or else you'd like to be asked first. Also specify milled vs unmilled. My LHBS mills the grain if you don't specify -- something I don't like at all.
