I have brewed this 5 times since I first sampled it. Definitely one of my favorite go to recipes (scaled to 11 gallons a little special b or cararoma is all i add extra)

Cheers;
Steve

Steve, glad to hear you're still enjoying this beer! It's one of a few beers I've been making very regularly. Though to my shame I have none at the moment, I had better do something about that.

How much Special B do you use? I have some kicking around and it sounds like a nice addition to the malt flavours.

1/2 lb of special B to a 11 gallon scaled batch..the toasted oats sounds like a nice idea as well.

Cheers;
Steve

That's about 110g into my 25L batches.

Hey Brad! Wanted to give you some feedback on your recipe. Here's a quote from a buddy, cut and pasted from an email:

Quote:
The Oatmeal was pure joy. How much would I have to pay you to make enough to fill up a bathtub so I can swim around in it?
I enjoy it, too. It tastes almost exactly like the oatmeal stout at my local brewpub, Kroghs, and that's high praise.

-Joe

Glad you enjoyed it so much! And that's definitely one of the more interesting comments I've heard about it!

To each his own I suppose. Personally I'll stick with drinking it the old fashioned way.

Also if you're doing a 5 US Gallon batch, this recipe is actually 6.5 US Gallons so you'll want to scale back appropriately (and of course for your own efficiency).
I noticed in your beersmith file the recipe batch is 6.6G and the Biol size for a 90 minute boil is also 6.6G. I'm assuming the recipe is for the 6.6G into fermenter?
