I'm not a fan of the hopping. I love hops, but late hops in an oatmeal stout comes across as pretty weird, and I would think especially so with fuggles and northern brewer. I'd just use a nice clean 60 minute addition and forget the late additions. Ideally, the bittering hops would be a cleaner bittering addition like magnum, as centennial has a bit of floral and citrus, but it might be ok. The malt bill looks good!

Thanks for comment.. Will consider that in recipe. Really looking for help on mash processes and help with mash/sparge.

Oats are a bit sticky, so I'd probably mash on the thin side, say 1.5-1.75 quarts/pound. I like oatmeal stouts mashed at a higher temperature to have a full body, so I tend to mash mine at 156. You could go with 154, for a medium to medium/full body.

Batch sparging works great, so if that's what you're accustomed to that would be fine.

I always like adding about a pound of medium crystal malt in my stouts, but that's some advice you can take or leave. It will help add some sweetness, as I'm usually not a fan of overly roasty/dry stouts. Also, I agree with Yooper for the hopping. A 60 min bittering addition is really all you need. Those Fuggles at the end aren't completely out of place IMHO, seeing as I like to finish with some EKG in my stouts/porters. How much of a difference does it make? Not sure, I guess it's just habit for me at this point.

Do I need to do a protein rest like my buddy is telling me? He says: 3.0g for 30 mins @ 122F, then strike 3.0 more gallons for 30 mins again @190F to bring the temp up. Then add ANOTHER 3.0g at boiling temp for final 15 mins of mash.


Then suggesting boilin range water for 2.5gal sparge....


I am not accustom to this mash technique ... I normally do simple infusion medium body @154 for 60-75 minutes. and batch sparge.



PLS HELP

Also, took Yoopers advice and did a 1oz 60 min Magnum addition only.

No, definitely no protein rest!

Your "regular" technique is preferable.
