Default Started my first stout

Greetings everyone,

Started my first stout tonight. Followed this recipe

http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f68/milk...-stout-182975/

and so far so good. I lost a LOT of volume during the steep/boil because of the oats and steeping grains.

This is also my first brew using just tap water treated with campden tablets. We'll see how it goes!

OG: 1.052
Windsor yeast, rehydrated when brewing started and pitched at 77F.

Also, I think I decided I really like Fuggles hops. The smell is just so good, lol. I bit into a pellet and noticed a slightly spicy flavor.

Hopefully it's a good one!

Cheers

This was bubbling away within 2 hours of pitching yeast, checked it this afternoon and the airlock was going crazy! I'll post a video when I get home.

Cheers

Awesome!
I hate brewing stouts because they require so much patience and time.

I was bit by the milk stout bug 2 weeks ago at a restaurant and decided i had to make one. Certainly kind of a bigger PITA as far as doing a partial boil than the others I've done, but I think it'll be fine.

I'll get the video up soon. Its basically slowed to nothing today. A little worried about it cuz it smells a lil weird and I deviated from my 'normal process' by using tap water. Surely everything is fine and I'm just being paranoid. Also my first dark beer so maybe that's y its different smelling. Kinda smells like butt tho :-/ lol

Suspecting the "butt" smell is some kind of sulfur smell. I'm not sure if Windsor is known for being extra sulfur-y but sulfu seems like a logical conclusion and I know yeast can put out a bit of sulfur smell during fermentation.

I am attempting my first AG stout next weekend. What kind of oats did you use? I am using Quaker Old Fashioned and I wonder if I need to follow this step; "Steep oats for 15 minutes at 115 F " before I throw them into the mash at ~155 F.
