The issue with doing an extract oatmeal stout is that oatmeal cannot be steeped like other many other grains it must be mashed with flaked barley or some other type of grain that can utilize its character. Another grain that you must mash is Munich.

I actually just posted yesterday about converting an AG porter that uses oatmeal in it, and I think that you will find it very informative. Take a peek. I am looking forward to brewing it this weekend.

Now you just need a recipe

As stated above, you will have to do a partial mash in order to get all the oat goodness. The good news is that it is very easy; I followed DeathBrewer's tutorial with this recipe and it turned out wonderful. If you don't want a big coffee flavor, just skip the addition in the secondary.

Oatmeal Coffee Stout

Mash:
.25lb Black Patent
.75lb Chocolate Malt 350L
1lb Two-Row
1lb Flaked Oats

7lb Light Liquid Malt Extract

1.25oz Glacier 5.8%AA @ 60
1oz Willamette 3.9%AA @ 20

When racking to secondary, add ~.5gal coffee that has steeped overnight in the fridge with .5lbs ground coffee.

Here is one that I brewed just this week.

Jake's Oatmeal Milk Stout

Grains/Extract
--------------
6 lbs Amber or Munich LME
1 lb ESB/Mild Malt
1 lb Roasted Barley
.5 lb Crystal 120L
.25 lb Chocolate Malt
1 lb Flaked Oats

Hops
-----
1.5 oz Styrian Goldings (3.5% Alpha) @ 60 minutes
1 oz Tettnang (4.5% Alpha) @ 45 minutes

Additions
---------
1 lb Lactose @ 10 minutes

Yeast
------
WLP002 - White Labs English Ale Yeast

I steeped the grains at 155F for 60 minutes prior to a 60 minute boil. If you want to make it a regular Oatmeal Stout, just omit the lactose.

My OG was 1.070 and expected FG is 1.020 - 1.025 so it will end up around 6% ABV. If you omit the lactose, lower the gravity readings by about .006 (at least according to Promash).

I like sweeter stouts and ales. If you don't want it quite as sweet, drop the lactose, drop the flaked oats to .5 lbs and increase the Goldings to 2 oz, or substitute with a higher alpha hops.

It was Left Hand's Milk Stout that inspired this one. Granted, this is an Oatmeal Milk, I think it will turn out a tad bit sweeter and smoother than Left Hand's. It's been fermenting for about 5 days now. I'll let you know how it turns out.

In stouts, some of the sweetness can also be controlled by carmelizing your DME more than you might otherwise. Just add less water and more malt at the beginning. You can also add molassis or maple syrup to add a slightly different type of sweetness. Not really traditional, but if you like it..

If you can do a partial mash recipe I'd reccomend the Uckleduckfay Oatmeal Stout recipe in The Complete Joy of Homebrewing by Charlie Papazian. I brewed a batch last month and cracked open the first bottle last night. It came out great and the book is worth owning in any event, kind of the bible of homebrewing .
