OK.... I added 1/4# roasted Barley, cut Maris Otter to 7#, added .5# flaked barley.
Beer Smith results:
Est Original Gravity: 1.054 SG
Est Final Gravity: 1.013 SG
Estimated Alcohol by Vol: 5.3 %
Bitterness: 34.7 IBUs Calories: 151.6 kcal/12oz
Est Color: 31.1 SRM
All within (mostly in the middle) range of style range. I didn't want the bite of a regular stout (say....a Guinness) so I didn't want to ratchet up the roasted barley any more. I had to drop the Maris 1# to keep it under 5.9%. I thought about kicking up the caramel 80 or the Chocolate malt to push up SRM, but that jacked up the ABV too much.
When I picked it up from Brewmasters, I asked what they thought and was told that it looks good. I'll be brewing it up Saturday and I will add a picture or 2 then to show how dark it came out (I picked up a Sam Smith Oat stout to crack open when we are done as a comparison)
Thanks for the help

What do you think?
Ingredient Name Amount
Crisp Maris Otter 8 lbs, 0 oz
Briess Flaked Oats 1 lbs, 8 oz
Briess 2 Row Caramel 80 12 oz
Crisp Chocolate Malt 8 oz
Kent Goldings, UK Pellets 2 oz @ 60 mins
All within guidelines for an Oatmeal Stout.
I like a thicker mouthfeel for my oatmeal stout hence the little extra flaked oats (just under 15%).
Thanks for your responses.
