That’s right, beer isn’t just for dinner and lunch anymore, now it’s for breakfast. My friends over at the Brew Dudes have also been in on the Oatmeal Stout and I haven’t brewed one since I used to kit brew. I think it’s time to re-visit this classing breakfast drink.
Seriously though, I am going to be continuing on my path of less is more in my brewing. This is a simple stout with some flaked oats to hopefully give the beer some body. I am currently at 3lbs of flaked oats, but I might be splitting that half flaked oats and half flaked barley.
Here is what I have so far:
Amount Item Type
26.00 lb Pale Malt (2 Row) UK (3.0 SRM) Grain
3.00 lb Oats, Flaked (1.0 SRM) Grain
3.00 lb Roasted Barley (300.0 SRM) 60 min
1.00 oz Warrior [15.00 %] (60 min) Hops 30 min
1.00 oz Northern Brewer [8.50 %] (30 min) Hops 10 min
1.00 oz Fuggles [4.50 %] (10 min)
Irish Ale Yeast (1085)
This is going to be a single mash infusion held at 154 for 60 min with two batch sparges. In case it wasn’t obvious by the recipe, this is a 10 gallon batch. I want to treat the water with some calcium, but we’ll see how the brew day goes.
