Obviously that promash->beerxml converter leaves some things to be desired.

My own system with a 25L final boil volume gets me 23L into the fermenter once I've chilled and racked off the break and hops.

I mash this at 156F.

thanks for the recipe bradsul! this is the first stout that i have made. normally i stick to ales, but it was nice to have a change. It's been a little over 3 months since brew day, and the beer has gotten progressively better every week since kegging. about 2 months after brew day (pretty much when your recipe says lol) the beer turned into a majestic liquid, capable of currying the favor of many stout loving chicks (i have awesome female friends).
It is an amazing beer and i will definitely make it again. the only issue i have is that the stout has a slight after taste, it is a sort of twang. has anyone else experienced this? it could very well be my methods, i did drop this beer on top of a yeast cake from ed's haus pale ale, and i boil in an aluminum pot. could either of these have caused this effect? now that i think about it, i havn't checked my water chemistry yet... that's probably it

Glad to hear you like it so much! I wish I had more female friends like you, mine don't like my stouts.

I've never noticed any kind of twang myself. If you used a full yeast cake that could possibly cause some off flavours due to over pitching.

This looks great, I have been looking for a "session" oatmeal stout. I am hosting a "Low Gravity Throwdown" for 6 guys I brew with, and I want to do something different from the special bitters that I expect will be brewed by most of the guys.

I also have been interested in trying Simpson's Naked Golden Oats. Any opinions out there on subbing this grain for the flaked oats? They tasted nutty and sweetly toasted-like oatmeal cookies-when I grabbed a few kernels at my LHBS.

I've not tried that particular product, but there is a nice subtle flavour change when I tried making this with toasted flaked oats. It didn't really appear until about 2 months after brew day when the roasted flavours finally settled down a bit.

I brewed a half batch of this yesterday as well. Hit all the numbers perfect. First all grain I was able to do that with. Fermenting 8 hours later. Don't know how I am going to wait three months. It's going to be really tough.
