Recipe Type: All Grain   
Yeast: US-05   
Yeast Starter: Rehydrated   
Batch Size (Gallons): 5.5   
Original Gravity: 1.054   
Final Gravity: 1.016   
IBU: 40   
Boiling Time (Minutes): 60   
Color: 22 SRM   
Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 21 days @65f   
Secondary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 3 days @ 34f   
Tasting Notes: This is a killer blend between an American IPA and a brown ale.   

This is my take on a blender of a Janet's Brown inspired hoppy brown ale that is more towards the "dank" and resinous hoppy spectrum. I would buy this beer in mass quantities if it was produced commercially, instead I have brewed it 4 times (5 gallon). Mine is assumed 65% efficiency as I do all of my beers as full volume mash and do a constant recirculation through the mash. I have done several mash temps and 152-154 is your best bet.

10 lbs American two row
1 lb Quick oats (quaker or generic) in mash
10 oz. Special B
10 oz Crystal 60
10 oz Pale chocolate

0.5oz Chinook FWH
1.0oz Cascade 15 minutes
1.0oz Chinook 5 minutes
1.0oz Chinook 0 minutes with approx 15-20 minute whirlpool

US-05 rehydrated and pitched to aerated wort.

would using flaked oats instead of the quick oats make a difference?

I just made a similar recipe, and used 1 Lbs flaked oats that I toasted in oven for about 20 mins first.

Attached. I started with a Bell's Best Brown clone and added oats. Still fermenting but tasting awesome.

have you ever tried toasting oats in your oven before adding them? Its incredible, really helps that oat flavor pop out as opposed to just contributing silky head retention. I usually toast half of what I'm putting into the recipe. Makes the whole house smell like oatmeal cookies for hours
