Craig,
I am only going to try a 2.5 gal batch to make sure I like it before I go full batch. I could probably swing a partial mash for this using info from this site and from my books, don't you think? If I screw it up, it will only be 2.5 gals!

Thanks,
Chris

Sure a partial mash is not much more complicated than steeping grains.
Still I would recommend making a full 5gal batch. If you can make an extract + grains 5gal batch you can make a partial mash 5gal batch. And 2.5 gallons goes much too fast.

I try to keep beers from several batches available in my store room and I always find myself looking for the second case of a good batch only to realize I am just finishing the second case. I've never really found myself wishing I had made less of beer.

Craig

Good points, I'd like to make this although I am purely extract brewing right now. This would be a good opportunity for me to gain some additional brewing experience. I am buying kegs this week, so can fill one of them up! Thanks for any help with the recipe conversion.

Does "Hops at 60" mean you add it at the beginning or the end?

It means at the beginning of the 60 minute boil.

Pretty good stout. Would have to say that I definately like it better after a few weeks in the keg. Not as bitter as some stouts. The oatmeal works well. Now I'm trying to figure out how to make a chocolate coffee stout that is as smooth as this. Good beer.

I have this fermenting right now in the primary. I didn't have willamette hops, I used some columbus, all I had, and used enough to get the same bittering level figuring that 60 mins will not provide any flavor anyway. Hopefully it will turn out ok.

My batch has been on gas for 1 wk, and is really a nice blend (as you
mentioned) without the harshness that normally smacks you in a stout.


Thanks

What is "batch sparging"?
I have heard this term before, and wanted to know if it's better.

I have gotten more positive comments about this beer than any other beer I have made. It seems everyone likes it.
I will have to brew it again as I'm all out.
