Replicating it might be a formidable challenge. To me it seems like you'll need a heap of oats. I've made plenty of stout in my time and for a 5 gal batch I would suggest somewhere around two to 3 lbs. I know that may seem excessive but the one pound I put in my smooth stout barely registers against Black Patent and Roasted Barley.
In any case, good luck and happy brewing.
Well bye, I kant git anytin ere loike youse on da mainland. lol.
Still waiting on an e-mail from the LCBO to see if they will carry it.
I know I'll probably never truely replicate the recipie but I'll come closer to
what I want in a stout. We have a great micro brewery here in the metro
area called Storm Brewing in Newfoundland and I like most of his brews. In
fact I know the brewer. It's just that he don't brew stout. And he don't brew St. Ambroise Oatmeal stout
I hope I get a chance to taste St. A on tap sometime. As I say, The best
I have tasted so far and it certainly didn't let me down as to expectations.
My fellow club member also brought me down a Mill St. Coffee Porter from TO
which was also a great brew.
A few of our guys are also with the MontreALERS and have posted several places which serve great brews in the Montreal area.
