I was thinking the same thing since it is only bittering it shoudnt add any flavors or aroma.

EDIT: I bought all the ingredients except I got irish ale liquid yeast. I plan on brewing this tonight when the kids go to sleep so it will be another long night. 2.5 gallon Batch

EDIT I brewed this yesterday for National Home Brew day and everything went great. I also ordered a 6.5g minibrew conical fermenter. Now all I need is a stir plate and a 8 gallon stock pot and I should be able to do 5g all grain.

my fg finished at 1.020, which is alittle lower alcohol percentage i was aiming for(was hoping 5% or higher)....but the sample did taste great

do you think i should try to do something to try to get it around 1.010? like add another new pack of nottingham?

You could try giving the fermenter a swirl to suspend some yeast so they can have another go at it. There is tons of yeast in there already, I wouldn't bother adding more. Raising the temperature a few degrees can also wake up the yeast.

How did the toasted oats work out? Does the flavour come through? I haven't gotten around to trying it yet but it's on my to-brew list.

Finally brewed up a batch of this yesterday. I've put the recipe in my beersmith about a year ago, and finally got it brewed. Can't wait til the ferment is done!

This is next in line for me. I am thinking about racking it onto some wood chips.

How do you think it would handle the added flavor?

I'm not a fan of oaked beers, so I haven't thought to try it. I imagine it would add some interesting complexity that would probably work quite well with the malty flavours.

You could try a split batch and compare the two. Either way be sure to post how it turns out!

I have never oaked a beer before and I am itching to see what it does. I will give it a shot but not for long. Keep it at a mild hint. I will certainly post how it comes out.
