I just felt the need to revive this one with a bump. Had a bottle of New Holland's "The Poet" and it tasted, to me anyway, exactly like this!

Just felt it deserved better than page 4!

Back in the 1980ís actor Wilford Brimley did a lot of ads for Quaker oatmeal. He also played the grandfather in a house full of grandkids on an NBC television show, appropriately titled Our House.

He has always played cranky, cantankerous old men. And it always seemed to me that he, like W.C. Fields, would be irritated with kids. Any kids. So, this recipe is an homage to Wilford. It combines milk stout and oatmeal stout elements. I've always pictured him walking around a house full of kids barking out, "You kids shut the hell up and eat your damned oatmeal, ya damn kids!"
I noticed that this calls out 2 different things. Anyone know which is right?

Lactose. Dextrose is priming sugar. The lactose will provide some non-fermentable sugars and enhance the mouthfeel and body.

Just don't forget to add it! Between the lactose and the oats, the mouthfeel on this beer is wonderful. So smooth and creamy, I could honestly drink this one all day!

I'll brewing this up just after Thanksgiving. I'm gonna lager it (with 34/70) because I will have a couple other lagers going at the same time, and because I will have a yeast cake waiting to get busy. I'll post pics in March when it's done.

I like your recipe and would like to try brewing it. However, I only have a five gallon mash tun. Any advice on scaling your recipe down? Do I need to have a 0.4 gal.H2O/lb ratio for the mash?
