Hello guys, this is my first post and also first attempt at my own AG recipe, so I'm a little unsure as to how it looks. I would appreciate any advice or tweaks to make to it if it doesn't look sound.
I'm wanting to make a sweet stout, with milk sugar (lactose) and oats. Most of the beers I've made to date have been IPAs or bitters, so this is quite a departure for me.
Here's the recipe (if some of the quantities look a bit weird, it's because I designed it in metric):
% LB OZ °L PPG
73% 8 13.1 English Maris Otter
7% ~ 14.1 Flaked Oats
7% ~ 14.1 Warminster High Colour Crystal Malt 400
200°L » 35 MCU
5% ~ 10.6 Milk Sugar (Lactose) <- Late boil, or at flameout.
4% ~ 7.05 Roasted Barley
4% ~ 7.05 Chocolate Malt (UK)
Usage Time OZ AA » IBU
boil 60 min 1.587 Fuggles ~ leaf 5.2 » 28.4
Wyeast London Ale III (1318)
180m mash @ 155 F
Expected final volume 20L
