I was planning on a dry oatmeal stout as well! I'm thinking about toasting the oats. What are you thinking about?

I hadn't planned it out yet, I need to look into dry stouts, then I was thinking of just modifing my existing oatmeal stout recipe. Now that you mention it though I saw an episode of brewing tv where john palmer was toasting oats and it looked like something i'd like to try.

Northern Brewer has an Irish Blonde kit that you could probably dye easily. I've brewed it once and it was very nice.

I'm thinking about a typical dry stout, but replacing half the flaked barley with toasted oats and using some chocolate in place of about 1/3 of the roasted barley. I'll probably bitter to about .9 IBU:GU

Here are my results from last St. Patty's day. Any pale beer would work. I just used a few drops of green food coloring. Click image for larger version

Irish Blonde looks like it would be a good option too.

Ryush806, that green beer looks exactly like what I'm hoping for!

Yup! It turned out great. We put two drops in the bottom of a glass and then poured the beer on top of it. If you want to to be green from the start I guess you could extrapolate that out to 106 drops for a 5 gallon batch and mix it in when you keg/bottle.

No prob. You might experiment with your beer to make sure. To be honest I was using coors light so if you beer has any flavor or color to it you might want three drops instead of two.
