I did a Bourbon Oatmeal Stout over the winter, to rave results (I'm still waiting for my scores from the Longshot contest, though), so I can only tell you what I did.

I used 2 oz. of Black Patent, and 8 oz. of Chocolate Malt. I also used 8 oz. of Roasted Barley, something you should consider. (That's kind of what makes a stout a stout, AFAIK.) In addition, I used 1 1/2 lbs of Oatmeal, but that was more to smooth out the bite of the Bourbon.

+1 on roasted barley. Some people even say it's not a stout unless you use roasted barley.

Take a look at my oatmeal stout recipe- I used black barley and pale chocolate (and a bit of regular chocolate malt). It came out really good.

+1 on roasted barley. Personally, I don't like black patent at all due to the acrid, ashy taste (tastes like an ashtray smells to me). Roasted barley gives a nice roasted taste with a bite - good combo with some chocolate.

Thanks everyone. Cant get to the LHBS today and its the only time this weekend I have to brew. Just realized that I only have 6 lbs of 2 row as well so I will be making all kinds of adjustments to this brew. So I dunno if I'll be able to call this an Oatmeal Stout but I think it will turn out tasty either way.

I'll post my final recipe when I get done hodge podging around.

Okay, heres my edits:

-Subbed 3 lbs of Vienna for 3.5 lbs of 2-Row
-Used 1.80 oz of Hallertau for the 60 min addition (28 IBUs). I didnt feel like breaking open the pound of Magnum I have for 3/4 oz.

The biggest sub out - I decided this was going to be a no-chill brew. So I moved the 0.5 oz of fuggles to flameout. Dumped it into a 7.5 gallon tall sanke keg, capped it, and left for a party. Man that was easy. It's still at about 100 degrees this morning, so I am thinking I will pitch later tonight.

So I dunno if this is a stout, but I do officially have a name for it: "Lazy Man's Stout"
