Nick and I brewed an Oatmeal Stout on Thursday.
- 9 lb. Pale Malt
- 1 lb. Roasted Barley
- 1 lb. Rolled Oats
- .25 lb. Rice Hulls
- 1.75 oz. Chinook (60 min.)
- California Ale Yeast
OG: 1.050 FG:
Had to use a two-stage mash in this one, and had to mash-out. I hit my target temp for stage one exactly on, but missed my temp for stage two by at least 5 degrees. Not really sure how this will affect the beer, but I am not too worried. I also missed my target gravity by .004. I was a little bummed about that since lately I have been overshooting my target gravities. I am not worried that this will have too terrible of an impact on the beer though, just a little less alcohol, but if I were going for alcohol content I would have made another IPA.
Anyway, here are some pics.

Chilling the wort.
Filling the Carboy.
Yeast pitched and airlocked.
The smaller carboy is leftover second runnings, I will siphon it onto toasted coconut in a week just for fun.
Had a lot of fun making this one, can't wait to taste in about a month and a half.
