Oatmeal Stout

6.6 lbs Northwestern Amber Malt Extract
1 lb Northwestern Amber Dried Malt Extract (DME)
1 lb steel cut or torified or rolled or flaked or grocery store Quaker
Oats (can create some interesting specialty brews using the flavored Quaker Oats.)

3/4 lb Crystal Malt 70 to 80L
1/2 lb Black Patent Malt
1/2lb Roasted Barley
1/2lb Chocolate Malt
2 oz Northwestern Eroica Hop Pellets (bittering)
1 oz Northwestern Fuggles Hop Pellets (aroma). Can substitute Northwestern Tettnanger or Northwestern Willamette.

2 packs dried Yeast

Crack all grain (Crystal Malt, Black Patent Malt, Roasted Barley and Chocolate Malt) except oats. Put into grain bag. Bring 2 gallons of cold water to 155 F. Remove from heat source, stir in oats and add grain bag. Cover. Allow to sit for 30 minutes. After 30 minutes remove grain bag. Leave oats in kettle. Do not squeeze or rinse grain bag. Bring water (with oats) to a boil. Boil for for 15 minutes. In another vessel, heat &Mac184; gallon cold water to 170 F. Using regular kitchen colander, strain oats and water into brew kettle. Sparge with the 170 F water. Stir in amber malt extract and stir in the dried malt extract. Stir well. Do not return to heat until malt extract is well dissolved. Add enough water to get 6 gallons. Bring to a boil - total boiling time is 60 minutes. Add bittering hops (2 oz Eroica). 5 minutes left add aroma hops (1 oz Fuggles). Quickly cool wort to 76F Rack into carboy leaving behind as much sediment as possible. When racking attempt to introduce oxygen by splashing wort into carboy. Activate yeast as per directions on the yeast package. When yeast is ready, stir it into the wort. Seal fermenter and use airlock or blow off tube. After high kraeusen (3 to 6 days) rack to secondary leaving behind as much sediment as possible. After 2 weeks in secondary, bottle with 3/4 cup corn sugar boiled in 2 cups of water for 10 minutes. Wait at least 2 weeks to sample. However, this beer gets better with age. Have some other homebrew available to drink while waiting for it. Everyone really likes this beer, even my friends who "hate dark beers". O.G. 1.060 F.G. 1.022
