Oatmeal stout 2

Yield: 54 Servings

Measure Ingredient
3 pounds English 2-row pale malt
3⅓ pounds Dark extract
3 pounds Dark DME
1 pounds Steel cuts oats
2 ounces Centennial leaf hops
\N \N (AU=11 1, total=22.2
1 ounce Cascade leaf hops (AU=5)
\N \N Wyeast Irish Ale yeast
\N \N Starter (#1084?)

Mash pale malt and steel cut oats in 5 quarts of water. Sparge with 2¼ English 2-row pale malt, 1 lb. of steel cut oats, mashed in 5 qts.

Added dark extract and dark DME to the wort and boiled with 2 oz. of Centennial leaf hops (AU=11⅒, total=22⅕ WHOOPS!) Good thing I like hops. Finished with 1 oz. of Cascade leaf hops. (AU=5) Pitched Wyeast Irish Ale yeast starter (#1084?), took 24 hrs. for active ferment. My notes on it were that it was clean, smooth, and hoppy. The hops over- whelmed any oat flavor, but the oats may have added to the smoothness. Reduce the hopping level by ½. Also, not enough roasted barley "bite". Increase RB from ⅓ oz. to ½ oz. at least, maybe ⅔ oz. would be best. There was also ½ oz. of crystal used. Primary Ferment: 5 days Secondary Ferment: 2 weeks
