Ferment at 68F. I let this sit in the primary for 32 days. I bet it could have come out sooner, but I was in no rush on this one and wanted it to clean up.

Cold crashed for two days at 45F.

Kegged and carbed with 2.1 vols of CO2.

The fun story behind this brew is that I brewed it in CT with my brother over the Christmas holiday and then hauled 5 gals back to Cincinnati in the car with the wife, two kids and dog! I joked about the carboy getting shotgun because the yeast needed the heated seat... but, she wasn't buying.

My bro and I talk, text, email and dream about brewing together and this was the first batch we brewed as a team. The day was frickin cold [Mr. Bigglesworth] at about 23F, but we still had a great time, brewing, eating pulled pork sandwiches, drinking his latest Black IPA, popping open a bottle of DFH Bitches Brew and talking all day long. He just opened a new LHBS and a few of his avid customers swung by to share in the fun and homebrew. A great day that I hope we can duplicate again soon.

The beer: we wanted to create an oatmeal stout that was true to the style, easy drinking and smooth on the finish. We agree it's a great stout that we plan to brew again. The only thing it might be missing is being pushed by NO2. I dream of the day....

Anyway, this is my first recipe post because I think it is worth sharing. Cheers!

My brothers and I have been talking, texting a lot more the last few weeks about brewing together. I just got done bottling a 6th batch. but, that's cool. That whole day just sounded cool. Glad the beer turned out great. I'm looking for something creamy stout. Very creamy. So checking recipes here and there.
