Sure!

4 lbs Maris Otter
.6 lb flaked oats
.35 lb crystal 60
.30 lb chocolate malt
.20 lb roasted barley

.5-1 oz East Kent Goldings @ 60 min

Irish ale yeast

From my notes it looks like I mashed @ 152 for 60 min in 3 gallons of water and sparged back up to 3.5 gallons after the mash

When I do that again I'm going to mash in a little less water. Missed the og by a tad.

discgolfin,
After reading your recipe and looking at several others I decided I liked the balance of yours and so I created a GF recipe based on yours: http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f68/ag-gf-stout-365062/
My grains are ready/roasted, they just need time to rest and then I will brew it just in time for the new year... If you have any updates to this recipe pls let me know.

cheers.

Brewed this today. Got an OG of 1.078! I'm new to all grain and have been doing BIAB, and I think I might have cut the water a little short. I'm actually pretty stoked about the higher OG, I've done a few batches where I screwed up and it was too weak so I'm happy to be on the stronger side for now. Looking forward to bottling this in a few weeks and enjoying it in early 2013. Thanks again for the recipe.

Brewed this again this past weekend. I wanted to go for an imperial version so I upped the grist a little. My OG was about 1.080 almost 1.082. Was like motor oil! I added some unsweetened bakers chocolate too for good measure. The regular batch I did a few months ago came out great so I have high hopes for the imperial version.

I just brewed this one yesterday, upped the marris otter to 12# as I usually end up brewing a 6 gallon batch (and lose some in trub/bottling), but wondered how much and what kind of chocolate have you guys used?

I put in 8 oz of Ghiardeli 100% cacao bakers chocolate right at flameout.

I use unsweetened bakers chocolate; don't recall what brand though. Usually about an ounce per gallon.

Tried this for the first time today. Just finished up. Hit an OG of 1.064. My only miss was a mash temp of 154, I got up to 156(was shooting for 158). Hopefully it will be full bodied enough. I am stoked to try this one out. My first oatmeal stout. I cannot wait to get this on tap.

I've been trying to find a nice roasty oatmeal stout for a while now. Looks like this simple recipe may fit the bill. Going to brew up 2.5 gallons when I free up a fermenter! Thanks!

I am also looking for a recommendation for the best yeast to use with this? I have access to s04,05, Nottingham, and wyeast at my lhbs. I would prefer to stick with a dry, so I was thinking s04, but I have really been happy with Nottingham in my other beers, any reason to choose one over the other?

I just racked this to secondary and split it to make one half an espresso stout. It was really thin tasting at this point, hopefully that changes.
