do you guys think that if i used american 2-row instead of marris otter as the base for this recipe, that there would be much of a difference? I have a big bag of american 2-row and would ideally like to use that for financial reasons but dont want to sacrifice for quality.

For a stout, American 2-row will be fine. For a paler style, you'd want real MO.

I'm planning an oatmeal stout as my next batch too. My wife loves 'em! Anyone know what the oatmeal does to head retention? I was thinking of throwing in some wheat in a similar grain bill as Bisco Ben. Maybe just one pound of oatmeal and one pound of wheat. I really want a down to the last sip kind of head on this one... Advice?
