If you read my Mr. Beer post, you know that I have been wanting to do an oatmeal stout. I went to my LHBS and told the guy what i wanted to do and even brought him to the Samuel Smith's Oatmeal Stout recipe here on this forum (of which he was very familiar).

I told the guy that I only had the Mr. beer fermenter and he basically said that was no problem. I asked him if he had the extract so it would be as easy as the Mr. Beer and he asked what I had against having fun with it? He then set me up with everything that I needed for a partial mash and sent me merrily on my way.

So, I have just finished bottling my first Mr. Beer kit brew and now I am preparing to do my first partial mash! I just need to go get a new pot (because I dont have a big enough one) to do this and Im going to brew tonight!

here is a pic of my new toys that will be brewing in about an hour! WISH ME LUCK!!

It will go fine. Doing a partial mash is not that dfficult and the reward of an Oatmeal stout is well worth the effort.

Its really easy, infact stove top all grain is easy.

Just remember to add the dme at or near the end of the boil to avoid scorchin and off flavors
