Well, now it's 3/8, which means it's 3/9 somewhere, so I think yer ok, Yoops. How'd it taste?

Bernie would have to give you the final critique, but I thought it was good. He only gave me one bottle, which I drank in March, so I have to go by my memory here- but I think it was good. Not a perfect clone, though, but now I can't remember my impressions on why not. Maybe more of a hop bite that would be subdued with proper aging!

Making this tomorrow. I'm considering adding some crystal 20L, and maybe adding some victory, or toasting the oats.

Hops should remain the same (if I can find the correct ones in the freezer) and I'll mash high.

Be careful toasting oats yooper and everyone else... I followed some advice i found on here that said 45 - 60 minutes at 350. It smelled not of "oatmeal cookies" but of "chemical fire". I put them in a brown paper bag overnight, but the taste came through in the final product. Toast them lightly, turn often. I would say 20 or 30 minutes tops.

Thanks for the tips. I toast malt for very short periods (under 15 minutes), just until toasted, so I thought I'd do the same for the oats. I may not, though, depending on how I feel about it in the morning. (Way to, um, toasted, tonight to consider it).

Cool! I can't wait to hear the results, I only have one bottle of Fat Squirrel left in the cellar from last summer's drive up yonder.

A couple points:

1. I can't believe you haven't made this yet. I'm drinking from my third ten-gallon batch as I type. It has indeed become a staple in my house. I like it so much I haven't brewed my own Bust-A-Nut in over a year!

2. You're brewing tomorrow????? How come you're not brewing it at Cookie's, hmmmm?????

Well, I brewed it as I said I would. It's young, but now on tap. A couple of things- I had to use chinook for bittering, as I was out of magnum, nugget and galena. It's still really good, though! I toasted the oats until lightly browned, and I get a pretty toasty/roasted flavor from it along with the roasted barley.

I used nottingham dry yeast, and fermented it cool- not by design, but because my house was very cool. It was at 61-62 degrees throughout fermentation. The next time, I'll use an English yeast and try to ferment in the 68 degree range, because I'd like a little bit of fruitiness.

I see you put this in the database. I already gave it a follow-up in there, so consider this brew "tried and true" in there.
