    Hell yes, and add 1-2lbs of oats...

    I'd have to tastes this as is before I can say whether I think this would be a good add. It could make it awesome or it could push it toward cloying.

    your thoughts on oats in this recipe? Have you made this one before or is this the first attempt?

    I have not made it before but with oats in there I would be afraid of the beer moving more into the oatmeal stout range.

    he means he doesnt want to blend the upper left with the lower right. --- i think it would probably end up cloying if you did.

    Gotta agree with lake on this one ... it would end up way too sweet with oats ... given the rest of the recipe remains the same.

    In beer there is freedom.
    In water there is bacteria.

    I generally brew to style (not always but usually) because I'm a competition whore and I think brewing to targets is the best way to improve.

    Totally agree, althouigh I like to push the boundaries of a style to see how far I can go while stil maintaining balance. That still is all about having a very specific target and looking for ways to control flavors and textures.
