getting to be good weather round here for an oatmeal stout! I like the classic hops you're using. Should be a nice compliment to the "harsher" malts. I find oatmeal stouts work well for me when I brew them. Enjoy!

Here's a good BYO article on Oatmeal Stout:
http://byo.com/feature/305.html
They recommend steeping the flaked oatmeal with some 2 row in addition to the rest of the specialty grains for an hour to help convert some of the oatmeal.

Looks good. In the past I've usually just used 1.5-2 oz of EKG for 60. You're really not looking for the hop aroma in a stout.

I second the recommendations to drop the aroma hops and to actually do a partial mash using some 2 row with your specialty grains and the flaked oats. I'd also drop the black patent and up the roasted barley.

well I pitched my yeast early this morning at around 3am and the temp was 80 F. Now its 10 am and no activity but will hopefully see some acitvity in 24 hrs mark. I had fun doing this batch and it was a real pleasure hearing from folks in the house that the aroma smelled great when i added the hops. I will update in a few days.

If this is a partial mash, what are you mashing? Looks more like an extract recipe with steeping grains to me. Either way, sounds tasty.

Not to hijack your thread here, but...

I've got a cream stout kit from Midwest to brew on Friday and I'm considering my options:

1) Kick it up to an Imperial Stout with a few pounds of dark DME / LME that I've got laying around (will this work to kick up the ABV and still retain the Stout characteristics?)

2) Forgo the lactose and use a pound or two of flaked oatmeal

3) Throw it all in and make a Cream Oatmeal Imperial Stout.

Thoughts from the learned brewers out there?

PS. I've also got half a pound of rye... should I use it?
