hey Cheesefood-

What did you use to prime this? I was looking your recipe over, and it looks tasty. I have a stout that I put down a couple weeks ago that I think is not going to age out-it is too harsh, and won't carb properly, so I am going to make another.

Ha! I put it down to age and condition, but it is not going well.

Hmmm, I'm way late on this, but I thought the "oven method of mash" was to heat the pot initially on the range and then stick it in a pre-heated oven when it hit temp. Or perhaps I just made that up right now...seem to do that often lately.

Oh yeah, glad it's good!

that is how I have been doing it. Works like a charm, and my new oven has a nice digital read and input thermostat that is really accurate.

To answer the question, I went Ex-Lite DME for priming. I'm a DME Priming convert, but I always go heavy - about 1.75 cups because I like a bubbly beer. I think I might try an amber or a heavier DME next time for priming because the head isn't as dark as I'd like it to be. Alternatively, a nitrous method would be good to get that nice Guiness head.

Brewery name is no longer My Poor Thumb. I think it's going to be "22 Miles Brewery" in honor of Assistant Brewmaster Miles Barrett.

"22 Miles Boom-Boom Vanilla" is the first official creation. It's on week 2 in the primary, and will probably sit in secondary for about 3-4 weeks. After letting the Oatmeal settle for 5 weeks in the secondary, I'm quite pleased with how longer aging has treated the beer. Frankly, I don't fart as much when drinking the oatmeal. Must be better fermentation.
