I would like to do a 5gallon extract version of this with steeping grains as well. I have searched alot on the web, but cant find any confirmed great clones. Since I know the guys on here know their stuff, can anyone recommend me one? Thanks!
Kai said:From Clonebrews:
toast 0.5lb oats in the oven on a cookie sheet for 75min (turning every 15min) at 325˚.
Steep them with:
0.5lb Crystal 55
0.5lb Chocolate Malt
0.25lb Roasted Barley
5.75lb M&F light DME
2oz EKG 4.25% @60min
Wyeast 1084 Irish Ale yeast
I agree. I had to make a couple of substitutions because I'm out here in Korea so I had to use Cascade hops and Munton's dry yeast but I'm absolutely shocked at how delicious this is. Won't brew anything else!Thats the only Oatmeal Stout recipe that i brew now, its fantastic and it does come very close to the real deal.
I agree. I brewed this clone exactly as it was described. It is the second worst beer I have ever made.So, I brewed this and it ended up being quite light in color and flavor. In other stout style recipes a dark DME or LME is used along with the specialty grains. Just wanted verification that it is Light DME in this recipe
Wow, you ripped this recipe pretty good. Weird how the results vary with this. Its unfortunate because I am a tad concerned going into a brewing weekend where this is one of the two batches I plan on brewing. Based on Clonebrews version I think I will go ahead and do the partial mash with 2 lbs Maris Otter. I want to do a partial mash 1) because I'm trying to step up my brewing game and 2) it seems to me that it will result in a higher quality extraction (I think that's the term) than simply steeping for 20 min. Also want to get the full effect from the oats. I may try to get as close to a full volume boil as I can, probably 5 gallons or so.I agree. I brewed this clone exactly as it was described. It is the second worst beer I have ever made.
No flavor, and a brown color. Brown does NOT equal stout. I was very disappointed.
The first time I used this clone, I added extra chocolate malt, and I used 3 pounds light DME, and 3 pounds Briess Dark DME. I also added an extra 1 and 1/2 pounds of DME. It was delicious.
Never use this recipe! Use my altered version.
In a desperate attempt to fix this disaster of a recipe I steeped 8 ounces of chocolate malt in 1/2 gallon of water, then reduced it to a quarter gallon, chilled it, and then poured it into the keg. It now tastes pretty good, but not as good as my altered recipe.
My advice, just keep making oatmeal stouts, tweaking them each time and experimenting with yeasts, and one day we may have a decent clone. Too bad we can't harvest yeast from a bottle of SS Oatmeal Stout...
is that for a 5 gallon batch? what's the og and fg supposed to be?I have a great oatmeal stout I have made and altered,made this one 3 times,everyone loves it,real dark,taste like Samuel smiths
