Ah, good further discussion, as I plan to give the updated recipe a try this Saturday to see if it reduces the twang I got in the initial 'beta" recipe.

Any pointers on using FAN/DAP? I've not tried before, but if it can help tame it out a little I might try...

Thanks.

Question are you guys rehydrating the yeast or pitching dry into the Wort? Also Candi Syrup question. What are intervals for adding? I guess do one at the beginning and the other half way in?

I add all the candi syrup at the beginning; I rehydrate the yeast for 15-20 min before pitching.

I have always added candi syrup at the start of the boil, however FWIW candi syrup inc. recommends adding the syrup at flameout.

So are you still steeping oats for 30 mins at 155? Also what's the original water amount and are you topping off to bring to 3 gallons?

So I have made this batch and at bottling it was like drinking heaven. However, how long did you bottle age this at? I might have saw someone say 6 months, but now I'm second guessing myself. Is the standard 3 weeks good enough?

Was gonna give this a shot this weekend, but havnt toasted my oats yet... I think I'll give the updated recipe a shot as is with a couple changes... I am using some Kent folding hops and shooting for 35-40 ibu as swmbo isn't a big hop/bitter fan, only got my hands on 1lb of the d180 syrup the other 1# is d160 dif brand, I'm gonna use Nottingham yeast as I've had real good luck with it...

If I give this another shot using some quinoa... When I toast the quinoa, do I cook it according to package then cook it? Or do I just toast it dry? Really looking forward to brewing this one...

Brewed this yesterday in a 1 gal. Wort was nut-brown ale colour at the end though, no idea why. Im thinking either -oats werent dark enough or candi sugar wasn't dark enough (guy at LHBS had no idea what D-180 was and just gave me a pound of dark candi sugar). OG-1.090


Anyway, pitched the yeast without re-hydrating and it was bubbling through my blowoff tube in under an hour. Weird!

Uh oh, you used dark candi sugar instead of D-180 syrup? You are not going to get anything close to a stout, I'm afraid. I made that mistake once, and I will not make it again! Dark candi sugar is nothing like D-180 syrup; it's more like brown sugar than anything.

I recommend ordering online if the LHBS doesn't have it. It is an absolutely essential ingredient for this recipe, accept no substitutes!
