The next beer I am going to brew is for St. Paddy's Day. It is a basic oatmeal stout recipe, except I bumped up the amount of oats a little and I am planning on toasting the oats as well. I am also going to grind up a portion of the roasted barley in a coffee grinder and add it to the mash. I hope I get a nice, smooth, roasty, silky, chocolate-like beer.
I'm also planing on splitting this 6 gallon batch post fermentation, where one portion is left as is and the other will get coffee beans.
Ingredients: Marris Otter, chocolate malt, crystal 80, victory, roasted barley, toasted flaked oats. Fuggles @ 60, US 05.
