I was wondering if anyone had any experience with the northern brewer oatmeal stout kit, I copied, mostly, the American Amber kit and it came out beautiful. I was also thinking about tossing in some coffee that a friend of mine roasts if I the carboy is free by then to secondary it. For those that don't know the recipe is as follows:

O.G: 1.042 READY: 6 WEEKS
Suggested fermentation schedule:
-- 1–2 weeks primary; 1–2 weeks secondary;
2 weeks bottle conditioning
-- 6.5 lbs English Maris Otter
-- 1 lb Flaked Oats
-- 0.5 lb English Roasted Barley
-- 0.5 lb English Chocolate Malt
-- 0.5 lb English Dark Crystal
Sacch’ Rest: 153° F for 60 minutes
Mashout: 170° F for 10 minutes
1 oz. Glacier (60 min)

Safale S-04 Ale Yeast. -
Optimum temp: 64–75° F

I did that and its more like a brow ale or porter than a stout, add a pound or two of s row and half pound of crystal 120 along with half pound of lactose and mash at 157 and it will make it better

Yes, I brewed the NB Oatmeal Stout last winter. A friend brewed the same kit but added a real strong cup of coffee in the secondary. Both turned out real good, but it did take about 4 months conditioning in the bottle before the flavors started coming through. I am not a big drinker of stouts, however mine turned out pretty good. Good to have around for the BMC folks that say they like dark beer.
There is wisdom in wine. There is freedom in beer. There is bacteria in water.
