I started getting everything ready for tomorrow, and found I'm out of FLAKED OATS.
Does anyone know an alternative for them? I have quite a few things on hand, but not the oats.
Thanks

EDIT------ quick oats will have to do--- off to grocery store

Reason: edit

Well sparky... with all the rave about awards, and the fact I like nut brown ales, I decided to double up the recipe, and make a final total of 12 gallons.
It's likely to be a little green by thanksgiving, but I'm sure some sampling will happen.

I intend to keg this, and wonder your method....since you have short days in primary, and secondary, I'm thinking you're kegging. Also, would there be an issue with just leaving it in the primary for the total days?

When I keg, I don't use a secondary. 3 weeks in the primary is plenty, then straight to the keg. It doesn't get any easier than that.

Good question. I'll try to remember to check when I get home, but I bet it was 70 or 75% - I never get really high efficiency.

70% - fixed it in the original post. Thanks.

So I have another question. My keg of this brew is almost kicked and I think due to my imprecise brewing practices my brew turned out different than intended. Maybe. That's what I'm asking. My grain bill was identical and my hops were identical. The only difference was the length of boil. Due to mechanical failure my brew was on the flame for several hours waiting to get to a "boil". It never did, but after a couple of hours it was down to the right volume.

My flavors were roasty, toasty, chocolaty, coffeey, and nutty. Very much so on all counts. My color was brown, but a DARK brown. Wonderful head. Creamy. Just very strong flavors. Heavy on the malt. Low on the hops. What would you describe the flavor profile of the nut brown coming out of your keg to be.

Thanks in advance guys!

Oooo, good question. I would describe the flavor profile very similar to your description. I'm not sure what effect the extra long weak boil vs shorter strong boil would have.

Was there something about how it turned out that you'd like to change? Might be able to help on that if you want to tweak the recipe.

I don't think I'd change anything really. It turned out a bit heavier than I would have thought. The mouthfeel is almost chewy in a porter-y kind of way. I think I was expecting a "session" type of beer, but what came out was more than that. It's satisfying and filling. The head looks like brownish tinted marshmallow creme...and it is very creamy. My cousin tried it thinking it was going to be a Newcastle kind of flavor, but what I brewed is much more complex tasting than that. He said it was too strong. Said something about needing a scoop of ice-cream to go along with it. That being said, he's no beer snob. He drinks a Heiny-Light and thinks he's done something cultured.

I was just interested to know if what I brewed fell in line with what I should have expected. Sounds like it turned out about right. I'm happy with it, but as a novice brewer I guess I was looking for reinforcement.

Good beer. Really good beer.
